Through its 17 years journey in India, METRO has been at the forefront of enriching independent businesses and the launch of its E-commerce app is a step further in this effort. The app which was launched during the first phase of the lockdown helped customers with a safe and seamless shopping experience.
METRO Cash & Carry India prides itself in empowering the Kirana ecosystem through its Smart Kirana program which is a first of its kind program that helps Kirana stores to survive and sustain competition through digitalization and modernization solutions. Furthermore, the E-commerce app reaffirms this vision of the company and has resulted in an increase in the frequency of orders by the Kirana customers, who are now looking for an Omni channel shopping experience.
