Metro, which operates more than 80 Cash and Carry wholesale stores in China "is now expanding its channels" by opening an online shop in China offering Metro's own brands, as well as supplier brands from Germany, it said in a statement.

The product assortment would subsequently be expanded to include more food items from Metro Cash & Carry and non-food from its Real supermarket brand.
