“Mahindra Retail symbolizes the role that we want to play in the life of every mother as she goes through the bittersweet journey of giving birth, and then tending to her little one. The brand has been built with a lot of care and affection, as an attempt to ensure that we are there, holding the family’s hand, through this remarkable transformation, that inevitably comes to every family with the arrival of a young one.

Mahindra Partners has played a crucial role in incubating, building and providing constant support to the initiatives within, which have become the cornerstones of our success. With over 70 stores, we are the single largest master franchisee for FirstCry.com.

For the future, our employees are focused on building a stronger presence in the category, thus putting us firmly on the path of building, delivering & exceeding the expectations of every customer.”


Employee Testimonials

Ranjit Nair,
Regional Manager

“I joined MRPL in November 2014. I was always aware of the company and had been tracking its performance. Many of my ex-colleagues had worked with Mom&Me in the past, and I got really good reviews on their experience. Moreover, the Mahindra Brand Name helped me make a decision and take the leap.

With 8-9 years of experience in retail on my shoulders, I was here to enjoy new challenges. I got good initial support from my friends, peers, colleagues and seniors. The culture at MRPL is such that innovation gets its true credit.

I joined as an ABM of Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh. From the very first day, I have been given ownership of business processes and guidelines. Our seniors are really good mentors and their high expectations push me to cover that extra mile.

My growth within the organization from ABM to BM to RM has been quick. I have been bestowed with exciting opportunities to manage larger territories with the addition of Chhatisgarh to my portfolio. I have been with the brand through many highs and lows, and the learning experience has been amazing.”

Sunny Kumar Rao,
Cluster Manager

“I began my career here in 2012, as a Floor Manager, at the Mom&Me Store at Shipra Mall in Noida. Since then, my journey has been nothing short of epic. From that role, I have climbed the steps to become a successful Store Manager, earned good increments, been given international exposure and 15 Spot recognition Certificates.

The Mauritius visit helped me the most in terms of my job role, because I learnt the nuances of working cross-culturally on a store development project.

Mahindra Retail offers a healthy work-life balance, a safe and secure environment, and a transparent appraisal and promotion system. Overall, the experience of working here has infused me with positivity.”

Mehr Arneja,
Manager – Store Excellence

“Life at Mahindra Retail has been colorful, lively and youthful, just like the brand Babyoye. I joined this organization in April 2016, and in a span of three months, have met the most supportive, helpful, approachable and patient people around.

The journey so far, has been a perfect combination of work and fun. Ideas and opinions matter the most here. I am currently working on In-Store Communication and Customer Experience, which is an exciting yet vast area. My projects revolve around bringing to life the various touchpoints in the consumer’s path to purchase, and is very interesting. The scope for learning is immense and I get to make the most out of it, given the state-of-the-art resources within the organization.”
