Reliance Retail picked around 96 per cent stake in Urban Ladder for Rs 182.12 crore,

Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries’ retail arm Reliance Retail Ventures has acquired around 96 per cent stake in eight-year-old online furniture marketplace Urban Ladder for Rs 182.12 crore, according to a stock exchange filing. Urban Ladder was among a clutch of startups including Netmeds with which Reliance was in talks for acquiring stakes in the past few months. The acquisition would further amplify Ambani’s e-commerce initiative JioMart that is perceived as a potent competitor to current e-commerce incumbents Jeff Bezos’ Amazon and Walmart’s Flipkart. Selling furniture online would also pit it against Goldman Sachs-backed vertical player Pepperfry. Urban Ladder would “further enable the group’s digital and new commerce initiatives and widen the bouquet of consumer products provided by the group,” the filing read.

Reliance Retail said that it also has

Thomas Croly spent two years scouring the limited inventory at furniture stores near his home in Maui before taking his search online, where he found a leather sofa at Costco.com that matched the style he was looking for and fit his budget.

“Normally, I wouldn’t feel comfortable ordering a sofa that I haven’t sat on, but Costco’s website had a much larger selection and significantly lower prices than the brick-and-mortar stores that I looked at,” says Croly.

Croly, a CR member and longtime Costco shopper, also liked the company’s return policy. “I’ve returned a handful of products to Costco over the years, and I’ve never had any problems getting a refund,” he says. “That gave me peace of mind.”
