The origins of Modern store can be traced back to December 15th 1951. Established by Mr Janardhan Rao as a small retail store in Ooty, Tami Nadu, it grew up to become a store for unique retail products, exclusive food items and condiments. The store became popular within a short time. In due course a few cooks who worked for the erstwhile British, were engaged for making a variety of homemade chocolates and this was sold fresh to the local population and visiting tourist.
