Winter parade of woolens on a Gurgaon street
These fly-by-night tent-shops have become a seasonal feature in Gurgaon, and indeed in the NCR region. Summer or winter, such shops source cheap clothes and sell them to those who can't really afford branded or high margin-added sweaters, jackets, caps, inners, gloves and blazers. Pavement shops form an integral part of the unorganized retail industry in Gurgaon. As the debate over liberalizing FDI in multi-brand rages in the country, many in Gurgaon say that such shops will continue to have customers - till customers themselves can afford to go to branded retail outlets - following which retailers in unorganized retail will move on others businesses. There will be enough time for this transition to take place.
