August 10: In a major development at the board meeting today, India’s leading home-grown footwear brand Liberty Shoes announced their unaudited results for Q1 ending 30th June 2022.
Commenting on the development of the footwear sector, Mr. Anupam Bansal, Director RETAIL and other board of directors at the meeting said, “With the focus of Government on the manufacturing sector, the future potential of the footwear industry is promising, particularly for established and organized brands. Rising disposable income is allowing individuals to move up the value chain, demanding products for different occasions, leading to new product segments in footwear.
Also, in recent times, Liberty has quickly spotted this emerging segment and has adapted strategies and earmarked significant investments to tap this market. A perfect interface has been enabled with the emergence of online marketplaces and support infrastructure for logistics and billing. Omni channel presence is the new buzzword, and Liberty is rushing to reap this trend. All this translates into a bonanza of greater availability, convenience and price optimization for consumers, helping them make informed shopping decisions.
Below is the comprehensive highlight of the Quarter results.
