Heritage Retailers of Bombay is the first and the only book on retail stores in the world.  Combining accounts of perseverance, innovation, integrity, hard work and passion, these stories reflect the overlooked lives of retailers and entrepreneurs as a rustic Bombay transitioned to present-day lively Mumbai.

“As I walked through the busy roads and narrow lanes of Mumbai, the history of our city through the experiences of these retailers suddenly came alive...

…Retail entrepreneurs who came to Bombay had fire in their belly, and the determination to work hard and make their lives a success.

As I heard their stories, some common themes emerged, showing how these extraordinary young entrepreneurs had built successful and enduring businesses.”

Through the ages and from all over the world, heroes of retail have set up shops in areas where people choose to live and work. There are 41 stories in the 2nd edition of the book and 31 of them are over 100 years old!
