Hippo Stores, India’s first One Stop Solution for all construction and building material needs, launched its third store in Zirakpur at Dhillon Plaza. Spread across more than 40,000 sq. feet, the store offers 12,000+ products from 160+ brands for homeowners, contractors, and retailers at wholesale prices. The store is the third of 27 such outlets planned across the country in the next five years.
For the inauguration of its third store, Hippo Stores chose Zirakpur as its location. The Chandigarh tri-city (Chandigarh, Panchkula, Mohali) is witnessing significant growth in residential construction and Zirakpur is an ideal location to address the same. At the new site, Hippo Stores will offer the entire range of building products needed for home construction from steel, cement, paints, hardware, bathrooms, kitchens, tiles etc. With the launch of this store, Hippo Stores envisions enhancing customer experience by allowing them to compare multiple brands, designs, and varieties all under one roof, which is the first of its kind. In contrast to the unorganized building material market, the outlet offers all its products at transparent and wholesale pricing. It also provides assurance of genuine products sourced directly from leading brands, along with advice from in-store product experts.
Talking about the launch, Hippo Stores MD, Amit Garg said, “After the successful launch of our stores in Delhi NCR, we are ready to set our footsteps in Punjab in Zirakpur. In India, there have never been stores that offer building materials of different varieties at one location. When you make your house, you face tremendous challenges – where to buy so many different products, what is genuine, what is the right price and who to seek advice from – we are trying to solve all of that. Since our inception, the stores in Delhi NCR have received a tremendous response from the market and customers, clearly indicating that the customers are looking for a one-stop solution for all building materials. We aim to make home building easy for our customers.”
The unique elements of the new store in Zirakpur will have multiple mockup modular kitchens to see the best utilization of space for kitchens and seven mockup bathrooms. The first of its kind, Hippo’s colour lab, and tinting rooms are also available with tinting machines from leading brands to see any colour and shade that a customer desires.
Hippo Stores at Zirakpur is set to become the perfect one-stop solution for ready-to-experience with so many unique options such as design rooms wherein customers can feel the application of paint, wallpapers as well as other visual display units such as tech-based screens along with physical units for those who wish to renovate and customise their dream home.
