Fitness First @ Mahim’s HAP Store
Launched in May 2015, The HAP Store became a much-needed fixture on the Mahim Fitness scene, with 3 prominent gyms within minutes of the store itself. Today, it’s the first and only fitness & nutrition store in the area, located at a prominent junction on LJ Road.
Why now? Says Founder-Owner Prem Punjabi:
“People found it difficult to source original supplements with authentic proportion of nutrients. A balanced intake of supplement is the key to achieving the desired physique. This is where The HAP Store comes in.”
A former techie, The HAP Store is Punjabi’s return to his business roots. And he isn’t one for half measures or patient pursuits. Within 5 months of setting up shop, “Prem Bhai” already has regulars walking in to thank him for excellent recommendations and genuine advice or meaty introductory discounts. The HAP Store recently launched an e-commerce website and delivers across the city.
“Nutrition is a category where fakes abound, especially online,” he says. “That’s why it is very important to buy supplements from stores you trust.” With the motto “Health @ Priority” (HAP), the store has been providing 100% orginal supplements, mass gainers and weight loss formulas. The vast network of officially verified distributors makes this possible.
IT’S ALL PERSONAL
In a short span, The Hap Store is already emerging as a trusted store thanks to Punjabi’s focus on building relationships. He approaches each customer with a single motive – ‘Right supplements for the right type’. Punjabi has updated himself with extensive contextual knowledge of products he sells. The store even offers consultations by 2 in-house nutritionists who help you plan your weight gain or weight-loss journey.
Punjabi says the presence of a physical store helps customers get a feel of the product, gather more information and decide its suitability. At the same time, he says, “ShopLyne connects you with the growing batch of tech-savvy consumers who are always keen on obtaining resources online.”
