sky is the retail supermarket chain of Supermärkte Nord Vertriebs GmbH & Co. KG, of which REWE Markt GmbH has been a majority shareholder since 2016. Supermärkte Nord operates 150 sky and plaza stores in Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and parts of Hamburg, Lower Saxony and Brandenburg.
The sky and plaza stores, which have their roots in coop eG, a co-operative founded in 1899, have long been an established shopping institution in northern Germany. It’s no surprise, then, that sky and plaza stores continue to embody cooperative standards, such as high-quality products at a fair price. Alongside the multiple award-winning cold cut meat and cheese selection from the delicatessen, the best example of this is the store’s own brand, “Unser Norden”.
With the coop bonus card, Supermärkte Nord Vertriebs GmbH & Co. KG offers lots of discounts and perks in sky and plaza stores to customers who are coop eG members.
REWE Markt GmbH is the majority shareholder in Supermärkte Nord Vertriebs GmbH & Co. KG, with coop eG as an additional shareholder.
All sky supermarkets will be rebranded in line with the REWE concept by mid-2019.
