There’s a quiet boom in micro warehouses coming up in cities to service quick-commerce demand
BENGALURU/NEW DELHI : In a bustling neighbourhood in south Delhi’s Kotla area, wedged between houses, sweet shops and mom-and-pop stores stands an ordinary building with a metal-and-glass exterior. It could well be a tuition centre or a local municipal office, but delivery executives who line up every few minutes with their two-wheelers and Zepto-branded bags give away the occupants of the building. The facility houses a dark store, one among several hundreds run by quick commerce firm Zepto. The dark store fulfills orders covering a 2km radius, fuelling the sudden demand for under 30-minute deliveries in the upmarket neighbourhood of South Extension.
