It all began in the year 1947 When the first store was opened by the late Mr. Narasimha Kamath on Cloth Bazaar Road, Cochin (adjacent to Broadway) namely Jayalakshmi Stores. The store was a mere 200 Sq.ft. Then with a lot of determination and hard work of Mr. Narayana Kamath, Mr. Govind Kamath, and Mr. Satish Kamath (Sons of late Mr. Narasimha Kamath) in 1997 our current store was opened in Cochin on MG. Road namely Jayalakshmi (near to Shenoy’s junction).
Ever Since Jayalakshmi has been part and parcel of the growth story that the city has witnessed. It has been the trendsetter in Cochin’s fashion with its signature style in silks. Frequented by discerning shoppers, Jayalakshmi has set new standards in retailing.
In 2009, Jayalakshmi chalked out extensive expansion plans. As part of this, our first branch was opened in Calicut on 20th December 2010 on Kallai Road Calicut. Then the second branch was opened in Trivandrum on 05th August 2011, the third branch was opened in Thrissur on 11th May 2012 and the fourth branch was opened in Mangalore on 10th March 2020. Today, the brand is well known with four showrooms in Kerala and one in Karnataka. Each showroom averages around 50000 Sq.ft and the most important factor is ample parking space bringing relief in crowded cities.
With time, the array on offer has grown from Sarees to ethnic wear, western wear, and branded wear. The ethnic collections for women include Lachas, Salwar-Kameez, Kutis, Shararas, Lehengas, Set Mundu and Sarees. For men, the variegated bridegroom ensemble includes Sherwanis, Kurtas, Tunics, and Pathani Suits. The kids also have an attractive collection to choose from.
