Metro To Put Real Hypermarket Chain Up For Sale

Source: Metro AG, Friday, Sep 14, 2018

In a bid to focus exclusively on its wholesale business, German cash & carry giant Metro AG, will initiate a systematic divestment process of Real and all associated business activities. Through its realignment over the past years, Real has laid the foundations for an independent future in the German food retail segment. Metro will thus further intensify and expand its focus on professional customers in order to tap the enormous potential.
