Our latest venture in the readymade furniture retail business is a move up the value chain and a natural progression in the wood products category. We are keen to leverage the company’s experience and strengths in retailing the finished end product. Centuryply will have flagship stores in key markets and also adopt franchise model to tap other markets.”

The store will also have a mock-up of an apartment with approximately the same dimensions as a typical 1BHK flat, to help customers visualize how Nesta can transform their house into a dream home.
