India’s easyday stores to house Naturals salons

India’s unisex beauty salon chain Naturals Beauty has entered into an agreement with Bharti Retail Private Limited, which joined hands with global retail brand Walmart for its retail foray, to set up salons inside easyday Market stores, which are compact hypermarket stores operated by Bharti Retail in the country.

Confirming the development, a Bharti Retail spokesperson said: "In order to serve our customers better, Bharti Retail sub-leases space in easyday Market stores. To this effect, we have sub-leased space to Naturals in some of our stores."

It may be noted that Big Bazaar, the hypermarket format of Kishore Biyani-led Future Group, also house Star & Sitara, a shop-in-shop for wellness, beauty and salon.
