Canadian grocery retailer Metro Inc has acquired a majority share in food retailer Marché Adonis.

Under the partnership announced yesterday (26 October), Metro holds a 55% stake in Marché Adonis and in its distributor Phoenicia Products. The founders will retain the remaining 45% share and continue to manage both companies.

The deal includes all four Adonis stores in operation, three in Montreal and one in Laval. A fifth store will be open by the end of next year in Brossard, Quebec.

Montreal-based Marché Adonis specialises in Mediterranean products and has four stores located in the region with over 1,000 employees.
