Departmental Stores & Supermarket in Nepal
I think supermarkets are the new retail powerhouses. They’re not just about selling groceries anymore. These stores have become a destination or an entertainment hub for the youngster and parents alike.
When you visit a department store, you might notice that there are different sections within the store. These sections include clothing, home goods, electronics, toys, and so on. Each section has its own unique products, which makes it easier for customers to shop.
