EghtesadOnline: Determined to expand its already extensive fields of business, the giant e-retailer Digikala is reportedly planning to buy out Rocoland, an online supermarket based in Tehran.
Digikala executives have mentioned a plan entailing the introduction of a new field of sale, i.e. food products, by taking over Rocoland, reported local e-zine Peivast which covers technology and startup news. The particulars to the deal have not been published yet, though reports point out that sealing the deal is currently tied to the last offer made by Digikala.
