    Hymall

    Hi, does anybody know what "Hymall" mean, it is maybe in China. I can not find it anywhere. IT is about the Tesco which wants to expand in China and to have a full control over HYMALL
    2) If I say "this pales ba comparison with the dominant domestic player..., which boasts 2000 outlets" does "to boast" mean that the domestic player show its shops with pride

    Boast here means that they possess something which they are proud of.
