Metro Shoes

Fashion · 101-200 employees - Rawalpindi

Metros first branch was established in 1986 with a commitment to serve the footwear needs of the community. Having surpassed the expectation of our Customers by virtue of quality and durability the next phase was the expansion of operations. As the population of twin cities (Rawalpinidi-Islamabad) was expanding sharply, therefore a great need was felt to enlarge the operations at different locations to provide quality products to Metros Customers. For this purpose two more branches were opened in the Twin Cities in the year 2000. Gradually, the heat of the Metro brand goes beyond the boundaries. In 2000, management decided to open a Metro Mall in Mirpur Azad Jamu & Kashmir to offer various quality products to the Customers. Today Metro is not only a Shoe Brand but its a Brand known for its quality standards having multiple products being offered to its customers. Considering the public response and immaculate demand of Metros products, Management has decided to expand its operations and have a three phase expansion strategy for future growth. In the initial phase we have planned to open five outlets before December 31, 2007 at various leading shopping centers in various cities of the country which include Peshawar, Gujrat, Gujranwala, Sialkot and Faisalabad. Secondly Metro has planned to enter Lahore which is a big market for Metro Brand. For this purpose there is a plan to have our own central warehousing facility at some prime location in the city. Thirdly Metro has planned to open its International branches at various attractive business locations like New York, London, Manchester, etc. This decision has been incorporated as Metro has a large number of its loyal customers in these world trade centers. In order to support the whole business process management has planned to implement ERP solutions which will be effective within a short span of time.
