Vivek Bali, the Chief Operating Officer for Sephora India at Arvind Beauty Brands spoke to IndiaRetailing about the business’ future plans for India and said: “We continue to promise the customer about 6-10 new brand additions every year which we will be exclusively available at Sephora. We have started our journey in the urban centres as 60 percent of the business comes from here. Balance 40 percent comes from the Tier II and III cities which are very important. Sephora will be embarking its journey in Tier II cities this year. We are registered a double digit growth with Sephora.”
