Wuhan lotus flowers served on dining tables nationwide
On August 30, Mei Xiang, General Manager of Alibaba's Hema Fresh Store in Wuhan, announced its performance in Wuhan. After lotus sprouts started to be sold across the country via the new retail model created by Hema Fresh Stores, the lotus flowers directly picked from Wuhan have also, for the first time, been sold nationwide. "With a unit price of RMB 3.8, over 10,000 lotus flowers are sold per month in Hema Fresh Stores nationwide."
In August, Hubei signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Hema Fresh Store, promising to continue supporting its construction of fresh agricultural product bases in Hubei Province.
Mei revealed that the third Hema Fresh Store in Wuhan opened on August 31 at Taiheli on Qingnian Road. The fourth one is expected to be unveiled in Tianxia Longling Square in Hongshan District by the end of September. This store will be close to Wuhan University of Technology and Central China Normal University.
Recently, Hema Fresh Store set up its Central China headquarters in Wuhan, announcing that it would open 50 stores in Wuhan in three years.
