The origin and the current scenario at the multipet shop Shakehands.
As the tagline, 'Caring for your pets since 1971' says, Shakehands has been in the business since a pretty long time and it most certainly is going to be here for a long time.
The story goes back in the 70's when Mr Kayamali Charania started a store in the busy old streets of Crawford Market followed by the launch of the company Kennel Doggy Articles with Mr. Sanjay Jadhav and then the launch of Shakehands, his first retail pet products store.
Shakehands has in all 3 well-stocked stores in Mumbai, which is their major selling point. Amirali, Mr. Kayamali Charania's son, who is also a part of Shakehands elaborates, "Our goal is to maintain a wide and exclusive range of products at each of our stores so that we are able to provide the customer with any product he requires. So, while the Crawford Market shop focuses more on its Kennel brand and wholesale products, Tardeo shop (the largest of the three with its very own grooming parlor) and Colaba shop caters equally to both cats and dogs. Then there are cages for hamsters, and lastly, food for fish, turtles and birds etc., all neatly arranged in separate racks for easy shopping."
Shakehands also offers home delivery services for these wide array of products at quite an considerable, seemingly low delivery rates across Mumbai and Thane stretch. You can visit the store personally, call to order or even order online at their newly launched E-commerce website 'Shakehands'.
