In the beginning of 90’s, precisely in 1990, MAGSONS entered into the field of Supermarkets by pioneering its first store at Miramar. The Store was the brainchild of Kirit and Andrea Maganlal who discovered a niche business uncatered till then except by some unorganized players and public co-operative stores. The effective Store area was 800 sq ft and the project housed, apart from the Supermarket, a well appointed Hotel, Restaurant and Bar, a Bank ATM, a Pizzeria and Ice parlour and Florist services. In the absence of sufficient market exposure and the fact that life in the tiny, idyllic State of Goa was unhurried and more laissez-faire than commercial, it was nearly a decade later that MAGSONS turned around and broke even. Despite the challenges and hurdles along the way, the Group was consistently aggressive in retaining its core business values and promoting growth.
