Metro Cash and Carry
Metro Cash and Carry is a German wholesale hypermarket chain operating across Europe. It is part of the retail company Metro Group.
Metro Cash & Carry is different to other large retail chains such as Billa and Carrefour in that its stores are primarily destined to wholesale customers, not retail. The cash-and-carry concept is based around self-service and bulk buying. To be able to shop at Metro, customers need a card which shows they are eligible to buy in wholesale and are therefore professionals in a certain field, such as gastronomy, crafts, own business, etc.
As of 2004, Metro Cash & Carry has operations in the countries listed below.

The supermarket in Oradea is one of the most successful of the branches and has been especially popular with Hungarians, who are crossing the border to buy products from the hypermarket since prices are significantly cheaper in Romania than in Hungary. This phenomenon has mainly started since Hungary joined the European Union, an occurrence which has increased prices in Hungary.
