We hope Shoppers Stop and Vodafone’s esteemed customers will enjoy the opportunity to own authentic Zoozoo merchandise."
Vinay Bhatia, customer care associate and VP- marketing and loyalty, Shopper’s Stop said, "We identified a significant opportunity in character-based merchandising and have therefore introduced an impressive line of ZooZoo merchandise in association with Vodafone.
