Malls have changed the entire concept of shopping in India. Earlier Indian consumers had to do their shopping in their local small / medium stores near by their homes. For specialty products they had to travel further in town. There was no parking place for their cars. For different products, they had to travel in different stores in different locations. Stores were unorganized and the consumers had to tolerate the nagging pressure from the sales persons all the times. Malls have made the shopper's life more pleasant and hassle free. There is always ample of parking space in the Malls. The ambience is excellent. All major products are available in the Malls.

Unorganized retailing is gradually diminishing as Malls are taking over the businesses
