A long time ago i used to buy t-shirts from Benetton which at that time cost me around KD20+ per t-shirt and i was thinking till yesterday its a reasonable price but yesterday after finishing our meeting we went to a mall calledΒ  Centrestage Mall New Delhi which is the largest mall in Delhi, and i spotted there Benetton so I in and loocked for polos and came up with 4 t-shirts but the problem was what? The price for eachI polo was KD 6.5 ! I didn’t believe it until I asked the seller “are these shirts a replica?” He answered with a smile: No sir we don’t sell any replica’s we’re an official Benetton branch. Then I asked him then why they are so cheap .. what do you think it was the answer?

United Colors of Benetton_1

Because they are MADE IN INDIA. So no importing cost plus no customs.

United Colors of Benetton_2

I bought them but i didn’t believe him until I went to the hotel and did a search in the net and came up with the same shop and more over, New Delhi got more than one shop. You can check it out by clicking HERE

    well, not only benetton, alot of stores like H & M and GAP have some of their factories in india; apparently its a good investment, because of the reasons ur salesman has mentioned πŸ™‚

    Yep, add IKEA and NIKE to that list too which source their material and finished products from India and Bangladesh and then retail it at huge margins in the West and the Mideast.

    The Benetton branches in both Syria and Egypt have tags “made in Syria” cause of their production of raw cotton. Check the link below for their world ranking by year.
