Metro Cash & Carry

Metro AG – a globally recognized German corporation – is located in Düsseldorf. It runs business affiliations in only ‘cash and carry’ stores under the name, Metro. Until 2020, it was also operational in the general retail industry. It was then sold to an investor group. In contrast with most retailers around the world, Metro doesn’t provide memberships to the customers. As per the updated stats of 2020, the company operates in 24 countries of Asia and Europe with 680 stores in function. In 1964, the organization was founded by Wilhelm Schmidt-Ruthenbeck and Ernst Schmidt. In 2010, it was recognized as the 4th largest global retailer after Walmart, Carrefour, and Tesco in terms of revenue generation. In 2017, the recent manifestation of it was initiated as a twisted version of Metro AG. It remained a consumer electronics retailer and hence named itself ‘Ceconomy’.

History

In November 1963, the first wholesale Metro hypermarket was established in Essen. In 1964, a year after the opening of the first store, the 2nd store was proposed in Mülheim an der Ruhr (The City of Rivers, Germany). The 3rd branch was opened in West Berlin in 1966. In the next year, through a collaboration with the Dutch business firm SHV Holdings, a wholesale hypermarket set off in The Hague, Netherlands under the name Makro. In 1980, Metro Cash & Carry gained over 24.9 % of Kaufhof – a German Department Store Chain. Metro AG was formed in 1996 by the merging of Metro Cash & Carry and the other two AGs. In July 2006, the company bought 85 former German stores of Wal-Mart, which became fully integrated into the Real sales brand. Makro-Habib in Pakistan converted to Metro-Habib in October 2012.
