Canada’s Metro Inc.’s Moi Rewards Program Expanding
After enrolling 2.5M+ participating members from Quebec, Canada, into its Moi Rewards program, food retailer Metro Inc. plans to expand the program to Ontario grocery stores falling under the company’s umbrella: Metro and Food Basics. With the expansion of the rewards program to those stores, Metro will pull out of Air Miles and end the Thunder Bucks program. President and CEO Eric La Flèche recognizes the grocer is witnessing a “transition year.” He expects the changes the company is making will lead to growth in fiscal year 2025.
With economic uncertainty still a concern for many shoppers, Metro sees customers making less expensive purchases—such as meat—and looking for deals.    
“Facing cost of living pressures all around, customers continued to shop carefully and search for value,” said La Flèche. He also noted that national brands still fell behind private-label sales.
