DALIAN, China -- JD.com will spend $100 million to back appliance store operator Gome Retail Holdings, a move that will expand the brick-and-mortar presence of China's second-largest etailer.

The recently announced strategic tie-up has JD.com purchasing convertible bonds that could translate to a 2.8% stake in Gome. The date of the transfer has yet to be set.
