According to media reports from India, Myntra plans to open as many as 100 offline stores selling cosmetics over the next two years. The first is likely to open in Bengaluru, within the next six months.
Myntra-Jabong CEO Ananth Narayanan says the company will recruit franchisees to run the beauty and cosmetics stores.
