Recovery in retail drives growth of Shahlon Silk

On account of current recovery in retail and e-commerce sales, Shahlon Silk is expecting more and more orders from its domestic and international manufacturers who manufacture for leading domestic and global brands. Shahlon’s export orders are back to 75 per cent of their pre-Covid level and expected to be normalised by the fourth quarter of the financial year.

Green shoots are seen in retail sales on the back of relaxations given by certain States in the country and MBOs have been very actively supporting the local shopping needs of the people and now that Government of India has eased out norms and allowed malls to function, the demand for women’s wear is going up and expected to become better month on month.
