List of supermarkets
The S-Group (Finnish: S-ryhmä) is a Finnish retailing cooperative organisation, founded in 1904. It consists of 22 regional cooperatives operating all around Finland in the markets for groceries, consumer durables, service station, hotel and restaurant services, agricultural supplies, and car sales. The full formal name of the nationwide cooperative organisation is Suomen Osuuskauppojen Keskuskunta.
The organisation's loyalty card is called S-Etukortti. It is engaged in close competition with Kesko, with which is shares an oligopolistic position in many of the markets it operates in.
The S-Group operates four distinct chains of supermarkets:
The S-Group's supermarkets retail the general private brand Rainbow, the no-frills Hyvä Ostos ('good buy') and the international Coop label.
The S-Group also operates the Sokos chain of department stores, ABC service stations, the hotel chain Sokos Hotels, several brands of restaurants such as Rosso, Sevilla and Amarillo, the Agrimarket chain, which sells agricultural and DIY supplies, and a number of car dealerships for Peugeot.
