The months of October, November and December pack a festive punch for the shoppers and retail industry. The festive season is the time when shoppers in India get into the mood to spend and splurge.
The festive months offer a wonderful opportunity for retailers, brands and manufacturers to pull out all the stops and bring out newer products and promotions, and lay out the special festive spread for consumers.
