Offline platform
 
As the core of our entity network, CCOOP Shops spread across urban and rural regions in the form of community supermarkets, convenience stores and stores in towns and villages. They mainly sell daily consumer products and agricultural products, and integrate online-offline functions of commodity sales and distribution. Adhering to the idea of openness and sharing, all physical business stores can become CCOOP Shops through franchising, cooperating, cross-industry partnership and institutional alliance, and the entrepreneurs can become the shop managers.
