Grocer Metro Inc posted a 5.2% increase in net income to C$80.3m (£47m) for the second quarter to March 13.

Sales climbed 1.1% to C$2.6bn (£1.52bn) while same-store sales declined 0.7% due to deflation in certain product categories.

The Canadian retailer launched its Metro & Me loyalty card in the Québec City region earlier this month.
