Lifestyle stores expand

Bangalore's first lifestyle store was the K Raheja promoted Shoppers Stop on Magrath Road, way back in 1998. It was followed by the eponymous Lifestyle, run by the Dubai based Lifestyle group, near Shoolay Circle and the homegrown Kemp Fort on Airport Road. The UK-based Littlewoods on Commercial Street was acquired by the Tatas and became Westside. Westside recently opened a second store in the Forum Mall in Koramangala. The Bombay Store on M G Road and Cinnamon on Commercial Street are two other stores. The Rajan Raheja promoted Globus entered the city only recently and quickly opened two stores, one on Hosur Road near the Madiwala checkpost junction and another opposite Lifestyle at one end of Richmond Road. Shoppers Stop will soon open its second store in Mantri Commerce on Bannerghatta Road.
