Phy-gital experience at Big Bazaar GEN NXT

Future Group has updated and upgraded its value-based hypermarket experience for the new gen customers with an innovative and futuristic retail format rechristened as Big Bazaar GEN NEXT. The Big Bazaar GEN NXT store is designed to be smarter and experiential - through use of technology, innovation in services, layouts, sections and digital interfaces.

In words of Kishore  Biyani, Group  CEO,  Future  Group said, “We  have  put  our  15  years  of  learning  with  Indian  consumers  in  creating  this  concept  of Big  Bazaar GEN NXT.  The Big  Big  Bazaar GEN NXT is designed  in  such  a  modular  way  that  it  will  constantly evolve  and  can undergo  continuous  upgrades to incorporate  more  technology-led interfaces and innovations.”

Big  Bazaar GEN NXT store has a  whole  new  design  that  has LED lighting, large digital screens, digital shelf talkers and energy saving technologies that  optimise  air-conditioning,  humidity  and  lighting  within  the  store which is conveniently segmented into three sections: Fashion, Food and Home & Electronics.

The brand new identity has been created with the infusing of colours bestowed in changing light kinetics in the store front sign. The store design concept for the Fashion Zone has been updated to a much younger and global one by storytelling planograms and dynamic digital walls complemented with warm lighting with large cluster of mannequins grouped into stories.

Floorings are also different for three different sections. The design concept for the Food Zone has been contemporised with inspirations from the new age culinary world. A dominant space is dedicated for this zone featuring a wider assortment of a variety of specialty food anchored by an open live kitchen.

The Home & Electronics Zone is laid out conveniently in a large space of 10,000 sq ft area methodically demarcated for different categories it offers. Each of this space has clearly signed individual entries with fixtures design and layout for very convenient engagement with the products offered.

Talking about the thought behind the futuristic hypermarket experience, Vishal Kapoor, Chief Design Officer, Future Group, explained, “The store is a culmination of our past learning with our vision of future. From a market cluttered with price-driven mundane models, we have moved towards an experience-driven model. The fast-evolving consumer behaviour, social and economic environment supplemented by technology have been key backgrounds of this next gen experience.”
