Visual Merchandising Props Mannequins are used innovatively to display their products in-store and in the window display. They are used as a tool to show consumers how the products would look like on a person. The mannequins will commonly be styled to match the in-house trends as well as the theme on display. Point of purchase display, a specialized form of sales promotion that is found near the checkout counter includes Fabindias Organic Foods, which are intended to draw the customers' attraction to these products.
Having visible merchandise is essential as consumers like to "buy what they see". This creates an emotional connection, which can drive the customer to purchase the product. Less is more is a key principle in Fabindias visual merchandising. Although having a wide variety of stock and product options is important for consumers, it is also important not to overwhelm the consumer.
Arranging stock, so it is not overcrowded and limiting the amount of merchandise on the shop floor, is an important aspect of their merchandising. To facilitate this viewpoint, Fabindias store involves a systematic arrangement of its products in shelves and racks, appropriately marked into distinct departments and categories.
Window Display Exterior window displays can be used to sell product and entice customers into the store. An eye-catching, innovative window display can promote the brand image. Fabindia uses a widescape window display to give consumers and by-passers an understanding as to what goods are sold in store. The first piece of visual merchandising customers encounter with a brand is the window display.
Fabindia adjusts its window displays based on seasonal events, calendar dates, and consumerism-based holidays such as Independence Day, Rakshabandhan and Christmas, choosing relevant colour combinations to display numerous products.
Color Use in Visual Merchandising The end purpose of visual merchandise is to aid in making a sale. It enables in converting a walk by shopper into a walk-in customer. Visual merchandise requires a combination of skills including creativity, artistic knowledge and understanding of store design. Color is a big attraction point in converting potential shoppers into customers.
Colour is a powerful tool in Fabindias displays. It draws from Indias diverse and immensely colourful background to develop an intrinsic yet creative display. Different colours are used to trigger different emotional responses. For example, blue can trigger a calm response, green and brown can promote restfulness, warm colours such as red, orange and yellow can initiate exciting, cheerful, friendly, vibrant, simulating reactions, purple can give the impression of elegance and sophistication.
Fabindia emphasises on colours that create an association with its brand identity by using neutral and earthy colours such as green and brown contrasted by more joyful and celebratory shades like red and yellow.
With contemporary aesthetic, the interiors are especially designed to enhance the customer experience - a brick and mortar space that invites a touch and feel of wood and fabric textures. It offers an engaging experience for product selection, fulfilling its concern towards assisting the customer to find a space of calm within which to contemplate their choices and an instinct to provide a fun, interactive shopping experience in a classical space, infused with the joy, revelry and family orientation that shopping for the home involves.
It is the ambience, which is important in bringing back a customer and Fabindias sprawling area and elegant interiors are bound to entice one to revisit. The most striking feature at Fabindias Koramangala stores is the spacious area and a bright and cheerful yet elegant look highly reminiscent of the desi-urban look and feel of rural India.
The choice of the dark exposed plywood throughout was to recreate the warmth of home and to create a dramatic and theatrical setting deemed necessary to assist the shopper to contemplate, reflect, relish their shopping experience, and allow their imagination to soar.
The merchandise is constantly upgraded in terms of design and colour bearing in mind the market requirements and Fabindias USP where new varieties are infused at regular intervals. Product differentiation is intuitively created through diverse color palettes best associated with various tastes, for example, spicy hot colors for pickles and chutneys and sweet and smooth for sugar and honey.
For Personal Care, each ingredient is converted into a single graphic motif an abstraction of the actual ingredient. The colour story references contemporary textile patterns and color blocking, iconic of the brand itself. This logic of associated color values is extended through the entire product portfolio enabling products to be arranged by ingredient clusters or benefit categories. This brings in a flexible system for visual merchandising in store.

By boat[ edit ] Numerous travel organizations now offer cruises to Singapore, Malaysia, Dubai, etc. Though the cruise industry is still developing, Mumbai can be reached by such cruises. Ferries from Ferry Wharf allow cheap access to islands and beaches in the vicinity of the city and the Elephanta caves.
Trains arrive in Mumbai from all over India. The main termini are Mumbai Central and Bandra Terminus. The Konkan Railway  which is a separately administered and newly built line travels through the picturesque Konkan coast of Maharastra and is a good way to travel from Goa ,[Mangalore]] and Kerala.
By car[ edit ] National highway numbers 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 17, and the Mumbai-Pune expressway radiate from the city providing links to all parts of the country. The road conditions are generally better than in the rest of India. Asiad Bus Service The bus terminal, popularly known as 'Asiad Bus Terminal' on Ambedkar Rd in Dadar east is another hub from where buses travel to Pune at regular frequency of 15 minutes to 1 hour.
Dadar and Pune are well connected by comfortable airconditioned Shivneri buses run by State Road Transport Corporation. The fares are in the range of Rs and buses vary in comfort from ordinary to luxury with air conditioning. Other routes available are Mumbai - Satara, Mumbai - Nasik.
The easiest way to reach the terminal is to cross over using pedestrian foot bridge to Dadar East from the Dadar Terminus and walk straight all the way less than 5 mins to Ambedkar Rd.
For Pune, buses depart every 10 minutes. Crawford Market, Dadar T. T, Sion, Chembur and Borivili are the main starting points. Mumbai Central is the most important Terminus in the city. All major cities in Maharashtra and nearby states are connected through Mumbai Central Terminus.
You can get buses for all over Maharashtra from these depots. But from Mumbai Central you would get buses any time as well as other State Transport buses. Quality varies. Get around[ edit ] Most of Mumbai's inhabitants rely on public transport to and from their workplace due to the lack of parking spaces, traffic bottlenecks, and generally poor road conditions, especially in the monsoon. However, do ride in a taxi and auto at least once in the city.
Most taxis in Mumbai are small-medium sized cars non air-conditioned , painted black-and-yellow black on lower body and yellow on roof.
You can hail a cab off the streets. However, many are quite rickety, dirty, and carry mechanical fare meters that could be tampered at times. Increasingly, these outdated Premier cabs, commonly referred to as Fiat taxis, are being replaced by small but efficient Hyundai Santro and Suzuki Altos, with electronic meters. Also, according to law, a black-and-yellow taxi driver cannot refuse a fare. If a driver does refuse, a threat to complain to the nearest cop usually does the trick.
Calculating Taxi Fare Calculating taxi fares by reading a mechanical meter and converting it to a fare using a tariff card, may seem like a complicated system. However it's fairly simple. Just read the meter, calculate the fare by matching the meter reading with a tariff card to arrive at the final payable fare - the minimum fare is Rs 21 for first 1. Prepaid plans have the fare collected at the start and thus the meter reading is not applicable. With large items of luggage add approximately Rs 10 per piece.
You can access it online at Mumbai Traffic Police website .
Complaints can also be lodged online using the same site. There are smartphone apps which can calculate the rate for you based on the card - these are very useful. Some drivers may "forget" the tariff card, or auto rickshaw drivers may choose the taxi card, which is more expensive. One can pre-estimate Taxi and Auto fares using the website . You need to enter the "From" location name and "To" location name and the service will calculate the distance, fare and also show you a Google map with the route.
If you have extra pieces of luggage, the boot i. Hiring a taxi with a top carrier will be better. Top carriers can accommodate up to three large suitcases. Before starting the journey, ensure that the luggage is securely fastened to the carrier. Generally, the only way to call for the standard taxi is to hail one on the street.
This will not be a problem if you are inside city limits i. North Central Bombay and below. If you are in the suburbs, it will be difficult to find a taxi as they have been out-competed by the cheaper auto-rickshaws.
The maximum number of passengers allowed for a trip officially is four — three in the back seat and one in the front. Seat belts are not mandatory for taxi passengers and most standard black and yellow taxis will not even have them installed, though expect them in the branded ones. Scam Alert Do NOT take black and yellow cabs from any railway station or the airport including pre-paid.
These cabs WILL scam you - from overcharging to swapping higher denomination notes with lower ones claiming that's what you gave them. Do not expect any action to be taken by the police as typically they are in on it as well.
Aggregator taxis like Uber and Ola are a safer bet. Private taxis[ edit ] However, if you want a comfortable, air-conditioned ride at a small surcharge of 25 percent over normal taxis it's best to travel by branded cab services that operate at government-approved tariffs. These services operate modern fleets with well trained drivers. You can get them at minutes notice, they are clean, air-conditioned, equipped with digital, tamper-proof meters, punctual, honest, and GPS-equipped-monitored, which makes them far secure at any time.
If you're using a mobile phone, you receive an SMS with the driver's name, mobile number and car number 30 minutes before scheduled departure. Some can be booked online. Follow the queue system to board a taxi. Quite frequently, tourists and new visitors are mobbed by unscrupulous taxi drivers. Most drivers are honest, but the dishonest ones tend to cluster around railway stations and airports where they can more easily find suckers.
Unless you are taking a prepaid taxi, always ask taxis to go by the meter and don't be afraid to seek another taxi if the driver refuses. Uber Ola cabs and GetMeCab are also easily available and can be approached either by calling the customer care, through mobile apps or through their websites. Some of the most preferred destinations close to Mumbai like Adlabs Imagica, Lonavala, Khandala, Alibaug, Kanakeshwar Mandir, Kolad, Shirdi, Pune etc can be explored by hiring an outstation taxi service for one-way or round-trip.

If you are alone, sit in front so that you can see the meter.
Most frauds take place at railway terminuses and at the airport. By auto-rickshaw[ edit ] Auto-rickshaws are only allowed to operate beyond Bandra in the western suburbs and beyond Sion in the central suburbs. They are not issued licenses in the downtown areas. Before departing, ensure that the meter is visible and shows the flag-down reading as If the the number is higher, insist that the driver flags it down once again.
The meter remains at After 12 pm they can ally night charges so meter can be rupees. The waiting charges are 1 rupee or meters per minute It's quite handy to have a copy of the meter card issued by The Mumbai Traffic Police. Auto-rickshaws are slower than cars and have terrible suspensions.
Pregnant ladies are most strongly advised not to travel by auto-rickshaws since the combination of rash driving, poor suspensions, and horrible road conditions have quite often led to serious complications.
The auto-rickshaw is a slow and uncomfortable vehicle and not recommended for very long distances. By bus[ edit ] Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport known as BEST  provides efficient and comprehensive services connecting up all places of the city and the suburbs.

The interchange stations with the Western line are Bandra and Andheri. Trains on all lines start operations after 4AM and close operations between midnight and 1AM. Second class travel is very cheap.

Leave the stunts to the experienced locals. There are special coaches for women on both classes. These are designated by green and yellow slant stripes, spot these stripes on the station walls and you'll know where the ladies compartment is. These are generally less crowded and safer. But very late at night, it might actually be safer to travel by the general coach than the first-class women's coach, as the latter may be absolutely empty except for you.
