Mr. P. S. Sivaperumal
A Native of Tuticorin came to Chennai with a far sighted vision that one day his empire will be the place where you could walk in without a thought that whether the same would be available in his shop or not. With the same in mind Mr.P.S.SIVAPERUMAL Started a trading shop for consumer durables in the year 1957 with his brothers in Ranganathan Street, Chennai 17. They expanded their business and saw the potential for growth then and had a branch in Pondy Bazaar, Chennai 17. In the year 1971 the brothers decided to manage the affairs independently and Mr. P.S.SIVAPERUMAL took over the operations at Pondy Bazaar, Chennai 17. The land for the above unit was also purchased in the same year.
The visionary has five sons to take over from where he had started and so he decided to expand to meet the growing demands of the ever wanting consumer.
In 1984 the visionary in him decided to set up a new unit called the Rathna Stores(Firm) as a partnership firm to deal with Stainless utensils, articles for domestic and industrial along with other kitchen wares. With the Carpet area of 4500 sqr.ft., the unit moved into its own place in the same year where it stands today with accretions to the land by putting one floor to another as business grew.
Rathna Stores(Firm) felt that expansion in one line of activity alone was not the key to success. He felt that success could be achieved in whatever you do provided it is backed by strong dedication and perseverance. With the same in mind in the year 1998 they expanded with an additional carpet area of 9000 sqr.ft in the same premises and included Consumer durables of Home appliances, Furniture, and other house hold items. With the same in mind in the year 2000 they put their sights back into their traditional business area to meet the ever growing demand for consumer goods in another locality of Chennai. They had already made themselves quiet synonym to consumer goods. Consumers used to come from far and wide as this was one stop which met all their requirements be it quality, variety or pricing it was always the trade mark of RATHNA STORES from the hay days of Mr.P.S.Sivaperumal to his generations.
The people of North Chennai found it very difficult to come all the way to T.Nagar for their purchases with Rathna Stores(Firm). To cater to this group and to ease the over whelming walk in of consumers into their unit in Pondy Bazaar they opened a branch in the year 2000 of the firm in Purasawalkam in their own place with all facilities and with a shopping area of almost 12000 sqft. This added to their overall growth in size, turnover and visibility. In 2001 they expanded further by adding almost 15000 sqft. to the existing structure to meet the increasing demand.
By 2002 the unit at Pondy Bazaar, T.Nagar was bursting with consumers and they had no space for further expansion so they built additional two floors with a shopping area of almost 9000 sqft. on top of the existing building. They now had almost the entire range of consumer durables be it from a safety pin to even the most sophisticated furniture’s. They are the dealers for most of the known reputed consumer goods Companies.
Then they had catered into jwellary and opened unit in Trichy as well. This phenomenal growth would not have been achieved if not for the consumer who where fully well educated to know where the right stuff is for sale. The father and his sons total commitment towards their goal and the right approach at the most difficult of times.
During March 2013, since Mr.P.S.Sivaperumal has decided to give control to his sons, the family settlement agreed and Pondy bazaar unit allotted to his youngest son Mr.Ganesh.
