U.S.-listed Chinese online book retailer Dangdang will open bookstores in retail outfits run by Better Life Commercial Chain, one of China’s supermarket and everyday item retailers, Better Life said on Saturday.
The move illustrates how traditional retailers and web businesses are partnering in new ways as China’s e-commerce boom sweeps more deeply than ever across the world’s No. 2 economy. Better Life is headquartered in inland Hunan Province; Dangdang is located in Beijing. China is the world’s e-commerce market
As part of the agreement, Dangdang will gain access to Better Life’s more than 452 stores (end of 2014 figure). Better Life will provide logistics services for Dangdang and the two will share online resources. The pair will also look into expanding together in the fast-moving consumer goods market.
Wang Tian, Better Life’s chairman, ranked No. 316 on the 2014 Forbes China Rich list with wealth of $800 million.
Better Life’s Shenzhen-traded shares rose 10% today to 20.33 yuan on the hook-up.
