VNRE - German-invested wholesale chain operator Metro Cash & Carry (Metro) on Thursday started work on a new center in the northern province of Quang Ninh as part of its plan to expand business nationwide.

Following the opening of four new markets in the provinces of An Giang, Binh Dinh, Binh Duong and Ba Ria–Vung Tau last year, Metro will soon have a US$20 million center in the province’s Quang Ninh City – its 14th wholesale facility in the country.

Covering an area of about three hectares, the new center has total sales area of 6,500 square meters and will supply over 25,000 food and non-food items and essential services.

Like other Metro wholesale centers, Metro Ha Long as the forthcoming one is named will target business customers such as hotels, restaurants, caterers, traders, offices, and service companies.

The new center will be opened to business in the third quarter of this year. The center will create around 400 new jobs.

Metro Cash & Carry opened its first wholesale center in Vietnam in 2002. The company has invested more than US$200 million in the country.
