~Opening an anchor store for Gardens Galleria Mall measuring 50,000 sqft~
Hippo Stores, India’s first One Stop Solution for building products, launched its second store in Noida at Gardens Galleria Mall. Spread across ~50,000 Sq. feet, the store offers 12,000+ products from 160+ brands for homeowners, contractors, and retailers at wholesale prices. Over the next 5+ years, Hippo Stores aims to be in 27 cities, and is planning significant investment of over 100 Crores into building technology, procuring material, maintaining inventory and creating physical store presence.
Hippo Stores chose Noida to be the site for their second store because Noida is among India’s top real estate destinations, and the city has witnessed a renewed interest from home buyers and realtors in the post covid times. Gardens Galleria Mall is located in the heart of Noida making it easy for the customers to find the store and hand-pick all the amenities for their dream house. Hippo Stores will provide everything required for constructing or renovating a house (tiles, kitchens, bath products, lighting and electrical products, steel, wood, hardware and paints) along with furniture and lifts at the new site.
With Hippo Stores, customers have the ability to compare multiple brands, designs, and varieties of a single product at one location instead of needing to visit multiple locations and markets. The outlet supplies all its products on transparent and wholesale pricing which is typically missing from the unorganized construction retail market. It furnishes all genuine brands and products with an assurance of no duplicate products and expert advice from their in-store staff.
Talking about the launch, Hippo Stores MD, Mr. Amit Garg said, “There have never been such stores in India where the customers get the convenience of getting all building products at a single location. . Hippo Stores is a one-stop solution for all construction amenities. Our previous launch of the store at Mayapuri was very well received by the market and customers, clearly indicating that the customers were looking for a one-stop solution. We aim at keeping the product line fresh with a stream of new products along with store launches over the coming year.”
The unique elements of the new store in Noida are multiple mockup modular kitchens and bathrooms, which help customers visualize the best utilization of space. The store additionally has living room sets with mock sofas, tables, etc to highlight furniture and hardware. Hippo’s Color Lab, also the first of its kind, features multiple tinting machines from leading brands to see any color and shade that a customer desires.
Hippo Stores, Noida is set to be the perfect one-stop solution with many unique options such as design rooms wherein customers can see the application of paint, and wallpapers along with other visual display units such as tech-based screens plus physical units for all those who desire to renovate and customize their dream house.
