"This is a great model for India as households of all sizes are already used to their neighbourhood Kirana stores. While we start with our dark store (no-walk-in) model, wherein we enable sellers to store inventory close to the consumer; this model has the potential of encouraging local entrepreneurship and enabling new business strategies and partnerships", said Sandeep Karwa, Vice-President, Flipkart.
