When we talk of Multi-brand Retail stores for electronics in Chennai, the first name that comes to mind is Shahs. In the business for decades, Shahs has become a name to reckon with and has had a legacy handed down for about three generations.
Shahs was started in 1944 by Late Mr.Chaganlal Shah, Later his son Mr. Virendra Shah (chairman) took over and made it a great success over the years.
Shahs branched into Electronics retailing under the Shahs banner in 1971. Shahs started as distributors of Eveready batteries and later Philips transistors, then came the Black and white television era and slowly brands like Sony came in which Shahs started retailing through Mount Road store in 1982- 83.
Shahs was the first to open fully air-conditioned multi-brand stores in the city. To stay ahead of the competition, Company began opening stores at various prime locations. In the last 17 years, Shahs opened stores in 13 locations and continue to expand. Shahs USP is that understanding customer needs and accordingly service the customers with world class products.
Mr. Bhavesh.V.Shah (Managing Director) son of Virendra shah says “We have traveled world over to understand display systems there and have adapted to the latest customer requirements. Today, we are the No.1 seller for premium range of products in the city and we believe that the focus on premium brands have helped us grow.
"From a 75” inch TV's to Side-by-side refrigerators, High end Washing Machines and invertor ACs, the kind of premium range that you find here are not available anywhere else in Chennai. Shahs has tremendous goodwill among customers and believes it is their service that has ensured this.
