EXECUTIVE SUMMARYPurpose: To study Determination of Retail Patronage First I studied on general information of the Dhiraj Sons Mega Store Pvt Ltd, Surat then I selected special project on the Determination of retail Patronage of the Dhiraj Sons Mega Store Pvt Ltd, Surat. The project report includes the information regarding the Industry profile, Retail profile & Dhiraj Sons Mega Store Pvt Ltd, Surat. It also gives details of the research methodology, Data analysis & interpretation, conclusion & suggestion for to make Dhiraj sons mega store Pvt ltd, a most preferred destination in Surat for shopping and increase purchase frequency. CONTENT OF THEORY: (LITERATURE REVIEW) To Study the above topic I refer the research paper & book of Retail management. First I learn about the meaning of the Retail Patronage. With the help of the Research paper on Determination of retail patronage by J. Patrick Kelly, Brigham Young University and Scott M. Smith, Brigham Young University. I carried out this research and it measures the Qualitative evaluation of the store and also includes criteria which important for the customer while taking purchase decision. Two scenarios currently dominate retail growth strategy formulation. Each scenario focuses on location or store attribute dimensions. So Qualitative evaluation of the store this alternatively improvement in the quality and variety of merchandise, speed of service and courtesy of employees within the existing stores could be improved. The distance to a store and store attribute have a strong influence on the probability of purchasing at a giver store location. Higher the distances lower the purchase frequency using this approach market potential could be

determined however the other attribute can mediate the willingness to purchase at a given store. SERVICE INDUSTRY PROFILE: The service industry includes the retail industry. To understand the retail scenario, there is need to understand about service sector. Service Sector in India today accounts for more than half of India's GDP. According to data for the financial year 2006-2007, the share of services in India's GDP is 55.1%. The various sectors that combine together to constitute service industry in India are Trade, Hotels and Restaurants, Railways, Other Transport & Storage, Communication (Post, Telecom), Banking, Insurance, Dwellings, Real Estate, Business Services, Public Administration; Defense, Personal Services Community Services, Retail. The boom in the services sector has been relatively "jobless". The rise in services share in GDP has not accompanied by proportionate increase in the sector's share of national employment. The services sector will be the top employer in India, while the public administration and education sector is to hire the lowest number of employees. Overall, though, the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey, says Indian employers are anticipating a stronger third quarter employment outlook, compared with their counterparts in the Asia Pacific region. COMPANY PROFILE: Retail industry in India is at the crossroads. Retail is an Indias largest industry, accounting for over 10% of countrys GDP & around 8% of the employment. It has emerged as one of the most dynamics & fast paced industry with several players entering the market. But because of the heavy investments required, breakeven difficult to achieve & many of these players have not tested success so far.

Retailing in India is gradually inching its way toward becoming the next boom industry. The whole concept of shopping has altered in terms of format & customer buying behavior, Ushering in a revaluation in shopping in India. Modern Retail has entered India as seen in sprawling shopping center, multi store Malls &huge complexes offer shopping, Entertainment & food all under one roof.
