While WOODS product have been available across our network of over 600 Woodland exclusive stores for almost a decade now, it’s time for WOODS to have its own look-and-feel as a brand inspired from London and thus, we planned to open stand-alone stores of WOODS. While fulfilling this dream, we thought of South India and thus, while Delhi (our Corporate Office) got 2 stores; South India got 4 stores planned in parallel. We have opened one in Palladium Mall (Chennai), Mantri Square (Bengaluru), Lulu Mall (Kerala) and the fourth one is upcoming in Sarath City Capital Mall (Hyderabad).
