The store No. 1, e-commerce website, formally launched on July 11, 2008, and created the precedent of “online supermarket" in China. It was established by the world's top 500 Dell executives Yu Gang (Vice President) and Liu Junling (global vice president, and president of Greater China) in Shanghai Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park. The aim of store No.1 is to provide customers with one-stop online shopping for daily necessities and the core concept of it is "integrity, customers, innovation, execution”. Also it makes efforts to achieve the target of the world's leading multi-channel retailer. Since the launch, just only in one year it has registered users more than one million, thousands of suppliers, and hundreds of brand partners; the goods it provided involve in the food and beverage, beauty treatments, kitchen cleaning, maternal and child toys, electrical appliances, home furniture, nutrition care, gift cards, and other categories, which includes 480 small classes, more than 40 thousand kinds of goods. The e-commerce company in a four-year period, grew up from the little-known B2C rookie to the dark horse of the industry. In 2010, the sales of store No. 1 reached 805 million yuan and last year, the sales reached 2.72 billion yuan, which completed more than 200% growth; but after the establishment of the first two years, this figure was only 417 million yuan and 46 million yuan.

Wal-Mart through the capital increased holdings of shares; meanwhile Ping An Group and Shop No. 1 experienced the process of ownership dilution. Also, in China, the e-commerce JD(Jing Dong)and Tmall have occupied most of the market, and Store No. 1 is difficult to break through.
