Metro to revamp distribution centres

Metro Inc. plans to spend about $400 million to modernize its distribution centres in Toronto and Ottawa.

It will build a new centre for fresh food and another for frozen food and cut about 180 workers from a staff of about 1,500 because there will be some automation involved in the transition.

The changes will take about five year and will start next year.

I hope the changes include buying better quality fresh produce for its Food Basics chain.
