In fact, it said that the company has seen buoyed domestic demand driven by strong consumer sentiments, and an uptick in social gatherings and celebrations with the onset of festivities.
“We are looking at a growth and that is reflected by delivering the highest or record revenue, EBITDA numbers, PAT numbers and if I look at our numbers pre-COVID, on a consolidated basis, we have grown 15 percent,” said Agarwal.
While talking about the e-commerce business, he said, “People thought during the pandemic that there has been a significant shift to online and which would remain permanent in nature is not actually not the case."

“We think, as Raymond, being in the business for 97 years, that shopping is an experience, it is therapy. So we are seeing that the brick and mortar store has its relevance and we are growing our store count as well,” Agarwal said.
On real estate business, he said, “We have sold 85 percent of our total launched inventory. We have 2 projects in Thane. One is TenX where we sold 120 units and the second is The Address by GS, where we sold 67 units. So that reflects that in the quarter we have been getting strong bookings and the trend continues.”
