Sephora opened its doors at Oberoi Mall, Goregaon, Mumbai recently. Spread across 3,130 square feet, the store is located on the ground level of one of the city’s buzzing retail hubs in the suburbs. With presence in cities such as New Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Chandigarh, Bangalore and Pune, this is Sephora’s 17th store in the country.

Talking about the brand journey Vivek Bali, Chief Operating Officer – Sephora India at Arvind Beauty Brands said, “It’s been a very strong journey for Sephora with a fantastic response from the millennial customers. I am very proud to say that Sephora is the No.2 searched brand for millennial. So when we opened the physical stores in India with the right assortment of brands matching the Indian skin types it brought in an overwhelming response. We are different and we have brands which nobody has. We continue to promise the customer about 6-10 new brand additions every year which we will be exclusively available at Sephora. We have started our journey in the urban centers as 60 percent of the business comes from here. Balance 40 percent comes from the Tier II and III cities which are very important. Sephora will be embarking its journey in Tier II cities this year. We are registered a double digit growth with Sephora.”
