METRO RE-ORGANIZES LUDHIANA OPERATIONS FOR SUSTAINABLE GROWTH
In its quest for sustainable growth and expansion, METRO Cash & Carry India is reorganizing its operations in Ludhiana. As METRO Ludhiana store goes under re-organisation today, there will be no in-store customer billing going forward as of now. Summarizing the organization’s intent to re-organize its Ludhiana operations, CEO of METRO India Mr Arvind Mediratta said, “We are actively seeking out new places to expand our footprint and grow our topline. We’re evaluating all options to improve operational efficiencies, including relocation within Ludhiana.”
In order to ensure that METRO continues to service its customers based out of Ludhiana, the organization has extended its delivery services from Jalandhar store all the way to Ludhiana. “We have ensured that the transition phase during reorganization is smooth and hassle-free for suppliers and customers alike,” said Mr Mediratta. Stressing upon re-deployment options available to METRO Ludhiana employees, CEO Mediratta said, “We deeply care for our people and we are committed to ensure that their interests are secured in all cases. Our employees have the option to move to existing stores within Punjab or even outside the state. Their well-being is our top priority.”

Standing on owned land, METRO is mulling over the choice of relocating to another location within the city. “METRO is a leading player in this industry and we are deeply committed in Punjab. We will keep our customers and suppliers informed about our decisions, and return with even better services and shopping experience.” assured Mr Mediratta.
