Indian grocery giant unveils its 50th store in US
Patel Brothers, a US-based grocery retail chain that aims to reconnect people with the flavors of India, has opened its 50th store in the country.
Patel Brothers, a <g data-gr-id="15">house hold</g> name among Indian-Americans, offers a full line of groceries including dry goods, frozen items and fresh produce. The store was inaugurated by the East Windsor Mayor Janice S Mironov.
The city and the State has a large Indian American population. It took <g data-gr-id="17">Mafat</g> Bhai Patel, an electric engineer by profession, and his brother Tulsi Bhai Patel 41 years to reach this milestone after he opened the first store in Chicago in 1974 in just 900 square feet.
Speaking on the occasion, Mironov said that it will not only serve the vast and vibrant Indian community in this neighbourhood but also will provide a great stimulus to other ethnic communities.
