METRO Cash & Carry, an international wholesale and food retail company, is all set to launch in Visakhapatnam. In India, METRO Cash & Carry is one of the leading modern wholesaler and food specialists that is currently operating in 18 cities with over 26 outlets.
METRO Wholesale will launch this division on 21 July 2021 at 1 pm at Madhurawada, in Visakhapatnam. METRO is not to be mistaken as a large shopping hypermarket. It only sells to businesses, small shopkeepers and hotels, essentially replacing wholesale markets, and FMCG (Fast-Moving Consumer Goods) distributors, in those areas. The company seeks to empower Kirana stores so that their sell-out improves. METRO also helps the small stores keep up with the changing times so that owners can remodel their stores.
Docking its first outlet in Vizag, the company promises 5-star quality products at wholesale prices. Here are the broad product categories:
- Fresh Fish & Seafood
- Fresh Meat and Poultry
- Gourmet & Imported Products
- Healthcare & Wellness
- Apparel & Footwear
- Office & Housekeeping
- Electronics & Appliances
- DIY & Home Improvements
