Since the beginning of the pandemic, METRO has accelerated its efforts to further expand its e-commerce capabilities. An online Priority service was deployed to prioritize orders for seniors, customers with reduced mobility or shoppers needing to self-isolate in 250 METRO stores in Ontario and Quebec, and 170 METRO stores in both provinces will offer ‘click-and-collect’ service by the end of the company’s 2021 fiscal year in September. This summer, METRO will open its first dedicated online grocery store in Montreal to service the demand for online deliveries in the greater Montreal area.
