Tata Retail’s subsidiary in India, Trent, has committed to opening 50 Star Bazaar hypermarkets in the medium term, including seven in the coming year.

Star Bazaar will target large-store openings of more than 50,000 sq ft. The group said that it is benefiting from the expertise and technical capability shared through its joint venture with Tesco and has also made improvements to its supply chain and merchandise availability.
