The staff of IT companies such as Infosys, Wipro and TCS have formed consumer Co-operative establishments to shop at wholesale prices in Metro Cash & Carry outlet @ Kanakapura Road, Bangalore.
Metro, the German retailer is into wholesale retailing in India. Accordingly, Metro can only sell to your neighborhood Kirana, Hotels or other smaller retailer who have valid KST & CST registration.
Here is a photograph of Bangalore Metro retail outlet which is packed with all luxury cars [Ya! right, Kiranawala comes to shop here in Luxury car.] One of the things our retail reporter noticed is most of the expats in Bangalore love to shop in Metro.
India FDi watch has filed a Public Interest Litigation against Metro [Jeez!!! Looks like these guys don’t have any other better work to do]. The shady government of Karnataka is supporting the PIL. This puts IT company employees into miserable tight spot as they will no longer be able to enjoy the pleasure of good quality goods.
