It’s a very welcome sign that despite the current lopsided excise duty imbroglio on gold jewellery in Kolkata and general failure of the state to lure strong business, Kalyan Jeweller, a name to reckon with will blitz into the city with three standalone showrooms in a single day on May 8!
Of the three, the one at Camac Street which will be in a heritage building will probably be the flagship store. The other two will open at Salt Lake and Gariahat. Besides featuring its popular range, it will also store all its famous brands.
Amitabh Bachchan is the company’s global brand ambassador and he has been featured with his wife, Ms. Jaya Bachchan in a recent campaign. Sonam Kapoor is also its brand ambassador. So they can very well be expected at the launch.
It’s going to be big.
