A Distributor's Step into Retail
The idea of Habitt was launched in 2001 to explore and tap local market for Al-Abid Textile Mills (Pvt) Ltd. Before stepping in this field of home textile, Management enhanced the idea of business by adding home furnishing items of good design, excellent quality and durability, at prices so low, that the majority of people can afford to buy them.
With the concept of the Complete Home Store (deals in furniture, home textile, crockery and home appliances) the first outlet was opened in a newly constructed mall located on Tariq Road - the hub of Karachi.
This business was eyed keenly by both Management and critics because not only did the Group enter into diversification ie from distribution to retail but also the concept behind the store was new and unique. By the grace of Almighty Allah, the idea was appreciated by the public. To attract more flow of customers, a grocery section was added to the business. Though profit margins are almost negligible in this area, yet discounted grocery items resulted in the remarkable increase of customer flow in the store.
Feb 2004 saw the opening of a second outlet in Tipu Sultan Road , Karachi . New ideas and new lines of business, were added to this Branch; like pharmacy and cosmetics.
As part of our expansion plan, Management is planning to open more stores not only in Karachi but other mega cities of the country as well. Like IKEA, Habitt focuses on long-term strategy of cost leadership and product differentiation.
