‘Night suits is a big opportunity because it can be a long term game’

Akhil Jain, ED, Madame

Akhil Jain Executive Director Madame“Since May some of our operations have resumed. Lounge wear, pajamas and athleisure used to be only 2 per cent of our overall business but in the three and a half weeks since we opened, this category has made up 33 per cent of the entire business we have done. Be it offline or online sales or demand from excising multi-brand outlets or distributors, the only products everyone is asking for are: pajamas, lounge wear or nightsuits. We see demand for basic athleisure wear and not fancy ones. It’s a small category for us. Also, there are not many players in the organized sector in India but in the unorganized sector, it is a big category.

‘With less business, retailers should reformulate cost structure, focus on increasing savings’

BS Nagesh, Founder, TRRAIN
BS Nagesh“We are not sitting at home with the intention of closing our business. We will all reopen our businesses. So, the first attitude is, we are going back to our business and will take it to the next level. Secondly, we will have to analyze our previous work and behaviour with customers in the last 5 to 10 years, if our attitude was that of ‘you are just a customer’ and ‘I don’t care’ previously then be assured your customer will never come back. The people or brands who have already created trust with customers will be the early winners according to me. At this time, those who are in competition need to introspect their future dealings and elements related to it. To create this trust today, no one has a magic wand because we are unaware of customer’s demand, choice and when they come in, we will not work on our KPI’s because we don’t know what the customer wants. It is all guess work.”

‘Retailers have to enhance consumer engagement by focusing on relation building and communication’

Hemant Jain, Director, KKCL

Hemant Jain“I don’t feel business will decline forever. It will decline but for a short while. Like in cricket, the game is not over if it is hindered by rains, only some overs are reduced but the score remains the same and in order to square the score players focus on hitting the ball to the boundary or over the boundary. Similarly we will have to focus on our ticket size. So if the ticket size grows maybe we will sustain but our priority should be hygiene and safety and we have to convey this message to our customers, that if you walk in to our stores it is safe. So, if we can communicate a sense of safety to our customers maybe retailers will be able to sustain their business.”

‘We also need to sanitize merchandise at regular intervals’

Vipul Mathur, Business Head, Udaan.com
Vipul Mathur Udaan“Can you move a part of your store online. Can you get to the same degree of sales without getting as many customers as you used to in stores. Is that possible? Can you do home delivery for people to feel safer. If you are an apparel retailer you might have to go places, can you avoid going there and use alternative sourcing methods. If you do all these then three things will happen: you will remain safe, employees will remain safe, customers will remain safe. Their being safe over time they can buy goods without any mishap. Practiced over time this will see business grow.”

‘COVID-19 is teaching Indian consumers to be restrained in their spending’

Rakesh Jallipally, Chief Operating Officer, U.S. Polo Association and Flying Machine

Rakesh Jallipally“Right now people are looking at essentials like staples and household supplies. That is at the top of their list. Apparel or fashion may be fifth or sixth item on the list. But all said and done from our personal experience, we have opened a few stores since and seen there is demand, people are coming in. Indeed, walk-ins are less but whoever has come in are decisive and buying. The world is not over according to me for apparel or fashion retail. There is enough optimism. Basically we need try to and reach out to our consumers because there is a need. It might be latent at this point of time because it is not essential but if we keep reaching out to them I’m sure demand will come back though it might take some time.”

‘If we overcome the fear our business will slowly come back to normal’

Manohar Chatlani, Chairman and Managing Director, Soch
Manohar D Chatlani“I think we have overestimated the prospective of this virus (COVID-19) to do harm. It is not as deadly or as dangerous as we think. It spreads faster than any other virus we have known so far. If we can overcome this fear, business will slowly come back to normal. Besides sanitizing and cleaning stores the government will have to think about public transport where people have the confidence to use them. Of course, to attract customers we will have to offer good discounts that are better than online discounts and newer merchandise than online. It is a question of time as public memory is short and things should become normal fast. I am hopeful.”

“Discount retailers and value-oriented brands stand to win”

Usha Periasamy, Director, Brands & Operations, Classic Polo
Usha Periasamy Director Brands Operations Classic Polo“Consumer spending is dramatically curtailed during a recession. Consumers have adopted short-term behaviour during the pandemic that in many cases will become permanent, as a lesson learned from such unprecedented occurrences. Not only do consumers become more financially conservative but also credit may become less available and a large cohort may go into default on their debt, dramatically limiting purchasing power. Consumers will wake up from the pandemic in a new economic reality, changing their commercial behaviours in extreme ways.

‘It will be very tough now and might take six months to be normal’

Pravin Mutha, MD, Cool Colors, Bafna Clothing
PravinMutha MD Cool Colors Bafna Clothing“Year 2020 scenario is the first time manufacturers have faced such a huge challenge. If they achieve even 60 per cent of sale compared to last year, it will be a great achievement and I presume that 20 per cent of manufacturers and brands will be wiped out. This is a big concern and the government needs to play an active and important role in this. The government has to understand the garment and textile industry is the second largest after agriculture and employs a huge amount of labor from all sections of the society. Hence, the government has to think exclusively for MSME’s and textile and garment industry, like restriction of customs on import, large format stories to source only from Indian market etc.”

“The elephant in the room is cash-flow management and crisis management”

Dr Darlie Koshy, Academician, Industry Expert, Author ‘Garment Exports: Winning Strategies’
Dr Darlie Koshy"The elephant in the room is cash-flow management and crisis management. For cash-flow management, except exemption package to file returns or reduction of interest on delayed payment, there is very little the government will do at this stage given the huge fund requirement and reduction in tax collection with bottom of pyramid's social and health costs taking predominance. Many SMEs will shut shop and consolidation and constriction will happen. There will be constriction in operations and consolidation of big becoming bigger with deep pockets and select buyer support."

‘To regain existing business everybody has to work as fast as possible’

Raj Kumar Jain, MD, Bonjour-Zonac Knitting Machines
Raj Jain MD Bonjour Zonac Knitting Machines“Everybody has realized this is the time to think out of the box so that the when it opens they will be ready with what they want to do, like aligning people, volume of production needed to be done, how many showrooms to open, what volume of orders to be taken up because export orders have been cancelled, most large format business have cancelled their orders with vendors. Hence, from day one factories will have nothing to do. As for brands, when they open they have already sustained with their fixed expenses and have no money and will not be able to ask their customers for money. In fact, we will have to assure them we are with them and ask them to start business with full confidence. The main worry is financial support. Low margin business or those subsisting hand to mouth will face extra difficulties. This will simultaneously open new opportunities. It will be a new life after opening. To regain existing business everybody has to work as fast as possible."

‘The one change we will see is online will bounce back faster than offline’

Manish Kapoor, CEO, Pepe Jeans
Manish Kapoor CEO Pepe Jeans“Whether you open today or a month later or you start EOSS from June 15 or August 15, demand and consumer sentiment per say is not going to change much. The other reality is, in terms of physical retail from the time you reopen the consumer will take time to go back to stores. The one change we will see is online is going to bounce back much faster than offline. This change has been seen in China also and the same scenario is likely to happen in India. In a scenario where the lockdown is lifted around May 15 and EOSS is announced, the consumer will still not visit malls to buy, so delaying EOSS is justified."

‘The garment industry will witness very tough time, may take six months to a year for normalcy’

Rakesh Grover, Managing Director, Groversons and President for Intimate Apparel Association

Rakesh Grover Managing Director Groversons“The after effects will be tough. Already the industry was going through a difficult time but after this, there will be a hard time because payment cycle will be affected, raw material supplies will be affected as the supply chain is affected, factories are closed and even if production begins, how will we continue production as we need a lot of raw materials and different ingredients to complete garments. To procure from China or India at the moment is difficult as labor returned to their villages and to get them back to work will be a big challenge. It may take a month or two to get them back to work. Even if we have orders production may not start in full strength for about two months post lockdown."

Will also have to liquidate maximum merchandise at better values

Bobby Arora, Director, Status Quo
Bobby Arora Director Status Quo“Once the lockdown opens, people are more likely to rush to restaurants and other entertainment zones rather than stores for buying clothes. This may create a frustrating situation for brands and retailers and compel them to offer higher discounts than the routine trend. Regarding inventory management, we will have to be smart and carry forward some of the inventories to the next season. We will also have to liquidate maximum merchandise at better values to make some money."

China was also under a lockdown and we depend a lot on them for fabrics

Akhil Jain, Executive Director, Madame
Akhil Jain Executive Director MadameSince we have our own manufacturing, we are manufacturing less. With lockdown finances are also shut, we will save about 100,000 to 150,000 units, that is produced and this is what I am thinking of if the season doesn’t begin in the next two months. As for autumn/winter, it is still under speculation as China was also under a lockdown and we depend a lot on them for fabrics. Of late, we have started pursuing Chinese...

Satyen P Momaya, CEO , Celio Future Fashion
Satyen P Momaya CEO Celio Future Fashion“We are looking at how to adjust to a new and challenging reality along with protecting the safety of our employees. Being a fashion retailer, we need tombalance the current season’s merchandise while working on possible buy reduction for the coming season. I foresee the market to remain challenging for at least a quarter even after things settle down and stores open as we fall in the non essential category and consumer sentiment will not be at its best. Therefore, I foresee a 20 per cent reduction in demand for subsequent months. We need to look at all costs to protect our bottomline and also manage the working capital. These are tough times and teams with character and determination will win.”
