Nykaa, which has been opening stores to let consumers recognize their brand, has accelerated offline expansion with 8 physical stores across cities like Pune, Coimbatore, Delhi, Ranchi, Ahmedabad and Kolkata. With this, total physical stores count stands at 113 stores across 52 cities. The company has plans to triple the store count to 300 across 100 cities.

Further, the company is gearing up for the upcoming festive season and resuming offline shopping behaviour. “As a result of the significant discipline that we ensured in our retail store business during the COVID affected periods, we are now witnessing the positive effect of scale on our unit economics, especially with the return of offline shopping behaviour. The consumer demand for beauty, personal care and wellness is also showing early signs of recovery and we are gearing up for a promising festive season this year,” she said.
