How Original Goose Country Went From Being a Small Retail Store to an Entrepreneurial Powerhouse

Not every aspiring business mogul has the luxury of seamlessly establishing their name without having to surpass countless insurmountable obstacles along the way. While others are armed with an arsenal of resources and support that they need at the beginning of their pursuits, some have to trudge a number of hardships in order to reach the summits of their chosen fields. This circumstance is an all-too-familiar scene for serial entrepreneur and trailblazing founder of Original Goose Country, Harsimran Bhatia.

This self-made entrepreneur has earned countless recognitions for her successes, abilities, expertise, and work ethic. Her efforts of transforming visions into actions have impressed industry authorities and aspirants because of how Harsimran Bhatia built her company from the ground-up. As she continues to stand at the forefront of her budding enterprise, Harsimran hopes to send a message of hope for those budding entrepreneurs who are struggling to get ahead.

As an immigrant from India with nothing but an American dream and a persevering spirit in her pockets, Harsimran Bhatia made it her mission to translate her seemingly far-reaching dream into a reality. Along with her husband, Harsimran opened up a small retail store that primarily sold clothes and jewelry. 

This little step of opening a retail store has indeed demonstrated Harsimran Bhatia’s propensity towards entrepreneurship. When the 1990s launched the trend of leather garments, Harsimran jumped the first train towards the craze. This exploration enabled her to expand her business, which led to the birth of Original Goose Country. By the years 1996 and 1997, Harsimran was able to grow her enterprise, reaching the twenty millionth mark in annual sales and profits.

Without a doubt, Original Goose Country has been making waves in the fashion industry since its establishment with its trendsetting garments, unique leather apparel, and brilliant founders. However, things began to turn for the worse when Harsiman Bhatia’s husband started to suffer from a stroke.

Having been greeted with adversities in the middle of her successes, Harsimran Bhatia did not allow these tribulations to overpower her dreams. Fueled by the determination to change her circumstances and improve the lives of her family, Harsimran persevered until Original Goose Country garnered enough traction to get itself back on the map. However, this promising enterprise suffered losses again as the economic downturn of 2008 had massively pushed them towards the edge. Refusing to throw the towel, Harsimran catapulted her enterprise to the pinnacle of greatness with the help of her talented son, Deep Bhatia.

In 2018, Original Goose Country managed to pull itself from the depths of failure while gaining massive fame worldwide. With notable figures wearing the brand’s intricate leather jackets, Goose Country has become one of the most sought-after retail companies across several industries. The teamwork demonstrated by the Bhatia family has proven itself to be worthy of its reputable name.

Although Original Goose Country is still in its first phases of business growth, Harsimran sees a bright future for her rapidly rising enterprise. In the coming years, the founder and her son hope to expand their venture across the globe.

With everything that has happened behind Original Goose Country’s success, the founder wishes to remind everyone that victories are still possible for those who are struggling to get ahead. All it needs is the right amount of grit, passion, and dedication to keep people going.To know more about Original Goose Country, you may visit its website.
