Ramping up e-commerce operations and going beyond its current strongholds are key challenges for the grocery chain in its battle with Mukesh Ambani's upcoming retail behemoth

While the impact of increased competition would be felt across the retail industry, it becomes more crucial for Avenue Supermarts’ investors
To be sure, the Reliance versus DMart battle is a fight of unequals in many respects

Two of the country’s richest men find themselves head-to-head in a battle involving the sale of everyday items. Mukesh Ambani’s is the largest organised retail player in the country, occupying a third of the market after it acquired Future group’s retail assets a month ago. But Radhakishan Damani, the founder of DMart, the grocery chain that started two decades ago, is no pushover.
