Netto Marken-Discount is a German supermarket chain. It is owned by the largest German supermarket cooperative Edeka Group and operates mostly in the south and west of Germany. The first store was opened in 1984 and the chain is expanding aggressively, with its 1000th store opening in 2004 and its 4000th in 2009.
In 2009 the Edeka Group completed acquisition of the Plus supermarket chain and has converted the Plus supermarket locations into Netto supermarkets.
The Netto Marken-Discount retail concept is to offer well-known brands at low prices, which contrasts with the strategy of competitors Aldi and Lidl who mainly offer products badged under brand names they have created.
