, Ranchi Review

Big Bazaar is a chain of hypermarkets in India, it has more than 100 stores in operation. It is a subsidiary of Pantaloon Retail India Ltds, Future Group, and follows the business model of United States-based Wal-Mart.

I always go to big bazaar after it has opened here. It is a real useful place to find cheap household items, clothes, and food all under one roof. However, the chaos and crowds often make shopping there a challenge because of its low cost, great sales and promotions, wide range of products under the one roof, many stores. Whenever I go I see it is overcrowded which make the checkout extremely slow. People though have complaints of poor customer service and overcharging here sometimes but it is ok.

I like quality and variety which is variable here. There are furniture, electronics, clothes, cookware, cosmetics, household items, food, gifts, jewelry, and books. Also has special Food Bazaar outlets. The stores open from 10 a.m. until 9.30-10 p.m. daily.

There was a time not so long ago, the large department stores were a completely foreign concept in India but not everywhere but now you can see in various small cities also. The Big Bazaar is one such departmental store to have set up shop across the country. Since its first outlet opened in Kolkata in late 2001, the Big Bazaar has spread to towns and cities at an alarming rate. These multi-level shopping meccas stock everything from food to fridges, and cookware to clothes.

However, the Big Bazaar isnt your ordinary department store. Its been especially designed to appeal to the Indian consumer. You may be thinking, what does that mean? In short, organized chaos with a slogan of "Is se sasta aur accha kahin nahi!" ("Nowhere cheaper or better than this!"), the Big Bazaar targets itself directly at the average Indians love of following the crowd and scrambling for a good discount.

You wont find neatly ordered aisles at the Big Bazaar. Instead, stores are laid out to replicate a market environment, with items all thrown in together sometimes. Promotions such as "Sabse Saste Teen Din" (Cheapest Three Days) and "Purana Do, Naya Lo" (Give Old, Take New) result in shoppers flooding the stores, to the point that some stores have become so overcrowded theyve had to close. I really dont like this scheme. I dont go there during that time.

If you visit the Big Bazaar in the daytime during the week, it is possible to have a deceptively pleasant and hassle free shopping experience. However, dont make the mistake of going there during a sale, on holidays, evenings, or on Sunday. When I did this, I had to wait for almost an hour just to be served at the checkout. Forget about getting the all items I wanted, I was happy to choose just one and rush to billing by taking just one piece!

Ive also found that the full price is all too often charged on sale items, so do check your receipt to make sure that discounts have been properly recorded.

But parking is extremely large. there is enough space but usually I see it is empty most of time..:-) Well, Big Bazaar is good but sometimes it becomes really bad experience for me.
