To celebrate the services of their retail employees and create pride of belonging to the retail community, Retail Employees' Day is celebrated on 12th December every year at Star Bazaar.
This year, employees were captured on camera speaking about their success stories, happy moments and life at Star Bazaar. This was shared with other employees across the country. Everyone was treated to a special meal and cake, followed by some fun activities.
