“Celebrate the arrival of a new store in Bhubaneswar, Odisha! Experience the magic of shopping. Unleash your inner fashionista,” said Vinay Dubey senior executive- retail business development at V2 Retail in a LinkedIn post while sharing the image of the new store.

V2 Retail, initially established in 2001 under the name Vishal Megamart Ltd or Vishal Retail, underwent significant ownership changes over the years. In 2010, founder Ram Chandra Agarwal sold the financially troubled company to TPG and a Shriram Group entity for INR 70 crore. Subsequently, after eight years, the company was once more transferred, this time to a private equity consortium comprising Partners Group and Kedaara Capital, in a deal valued at over INR 5,000 crore, as reported by Forbes India.
Subsequently, the company underwent a name change to become V2 Retail Ltd.
