COTTON USA Announces its First Joint Retail Activity with Shoppers Stop in India
COTTON USA, the trademark ingredient brand of Cotton Council International (CCI), announced its first retail partnership with India’s leading fashion retailer - Shoppers Stop. COTTON USA and Shoppers Stop will conduct a monthlong in-store promotion aimed at increasing consumer awareness of U.S. cotton-rich apparel, and gradually move toward creating an exclusive line of labeled merchandise. The promotion will take place in five stores across Delhi/NCR (Rajouri and Noida), Mumbai (Malad and Vashi) and Bangalore (Malleshwaram).
“This is an exciting time for COTTON USA, as we are looking at its expansion in the retail space in India,” CCI India Representative Renu Aggarwal said. “Shoppers Stop’s unique positioning as a ‘bridge to luxury’ retailer and its customer base give us a platform for more sales and increased visibility, while conveying the messaging of trust and purity. We are looking forward to a mutually beneficial relationship.”
Shoppers Stop is among the first of many brands that COTTON USA has partnered with for joint consumer promotion activities in India. COTTON USA, a mark of purity, quality and responsibility, places itself in the affordable luxury category and targets both the youth as well as the older age group. The partnership assists COTTON USA in driving market penetration and increasing consumer awareness about the label in the domestic market.
