In fact, as early as August, it was reported that CEO Wang Lei, a neighbor convenience store, had entered Wumart. The report also said that before Wumart's "take-over", companies such as full-time, convenient bees have taken over some of the neighboring shops whose rents are due. Some suppliers also said Wumart took over about 70 neighboring stores.

Wumei Group COO Xu Shaochuan said that Wumei's target number of stores in 2019 is 260, of which 160 are small businesses. Wumart hopes to take over more than 160 stores in its neighborhood, but it will take some time to resolve the problems left over by rent and partners.
