Bangalore, Dec 10 (UNI) Reliance Retail today opened a new world-class speciality store 'Reliance TimeOut' for books, music, stationery, toys and gifts in the city.
President and Chief Executive of Lifestyle Bijou Kurien told reporters that this was the first outlet of the three stores proposed to be opened in New Delhi and Kochi by March.
''To overcome stress, tension and work-load in today's world, we need a place where we can unwind and relax, browse a book, hear some music, choose a gift, purchase a toy, or some exclusive stationery for ourselves,'' he said.
This was the eighth format of stores launched successfully earlier in different sectors of consumer products like Reliance Fresh, Reliance Mart and Reliance Digital in the country. The company had invested more than Rs ten crore in this project and plans were afoot to set up 47 Reliance TimeOut stores in the country by 2010, he added.
The store had more than 30,000 titles sourced from national and international publishers in the books section, while in the music and movie segment, it had more than 12,000 titles acquired from leading national and international music companies. Listening pleasure was enhanced by imported sound domes providing a hygienic sampling of music at the music studio in the premises, he said.
