Within its inception of only two months ClubLaptop caught on the imagination of the customers and franchisees alike and now boasts of opening 16 franchise stores in 13 cities of India. However, the most spectacular Re-feel-ClubLaptop store so far has been the Jodhpur franchise store. Started on March 7, 2010, the Jodhpur franchise store is the biggest one till date with an area of 700 square feet.
Says Puneet Daga, the Jodhpur franchisee, who happens to be the owner of this store, “It was only because of encouragement and support from ClubLaptop that I could open this franchise store. They provided me with all sorts of possible assistance that I required.”
ClubLaptop has embarked on an industry that has been majorly untapped. ClubLaptop is a first of its kind retail service chain that provides quality repair services at affordable prices. Moreover, it aims to be a one-stop solution for all kinds of queries on laptop care and accessories.
Speaking about the store, Mr Amit Barmecha, Director Franchise Development, Re-feel and ClubLaptop said, “At Re-feel we use cutting edge technology and state of art equipment to ensure print quality and print quantity, both similar to the original cartridges. We target to open 250 Re-feel cartridge store and 300 ClubLaptop stores by the end of 2011 and contribute by setting quality benchmark in an otherwise unorganized market.”
Echoing the enthusiasm, Mr. Daga said, “With increasing awareness among the Indian users about using environmental friendly and cost effective alternatives, we are positive about the store receiving a great response for both cartridge refilling and laptop servicing.”
Mr. Daga said, “I have received a very good initial response and my entire team has been well trained and supported by Re-feel.”

The Re-feel & ClubLaptop project is a pedestal to the cost cutting mantra of the corporate power houses. More than 10 billion cartridges are projected to end up in landfills. Considering, that one cartridge dumped, takes 400-1000 years to biodegrade, this a great environmental hazard. And unfortunately with every passing day, the problem is getting worse.
The number of cartridges in landfill increases by 12 per cent each year. To the contrary, Re-feel, in the course of over two years, has saved over 4 Lac cartridges from being dumped into landfills and would save many more in the future. Discarding laptops due to problems is a common practice, thereby creating a huge amount of e-waste. Re-feel group is dedicated in providing low cost environment friendly solutions to the customers.
With service, trust, knowledge & technology forming the core brand differentiators, Re-feel is a highly committed organization that offers superior solutions to its ever growing customer base through Re-feel & ClubLaptop Stores through out India.
