In the next five years, Tata’s Apple Spaceship stores will open over 100 stores across India.
Another Tata Group company, Infiniti Retail will become an official Apple reseller and open stores all across India.
According to Economic Times India, Tata, one of the most successful companies in India, is partnering with Apple. Tata signed 100 deals and will open over 100 Apple stores across the country.
Infiniti Retail is a successful multinational company with many years of experience in the retail industry. Infiniti Retail will handle this retail operation, which makes it an official Apple reseller. Now that we are becoming a reseller, Infiniti Retail will have Apple stores all over the Indian market.
According to reports, Tata Group has already started negotiations with a number of different malls and high-traffic streets, in order to set up shops. A retail consultant who knows the deal said that the contract they signed clearly states which brands are not allowed near Apple stores.
Apple and TATA have refused to comment on the matter, but reports suggest that India will soon see a wave of Apple stores in higher tier cities.
Apple looks clearly interested in India as just a few weeks before, the tech giant announced an iPad manufacturing facility in the country. Tata and Taiwan’s Wistron, which is one of Apple’s top vendors in India, is in talks to set up iPhone assembly plants in India.
