Homeplus (Hangul홈플러스) is a Korean discount store retail chain running about 840 branches with 25,000 emloyees throughout South Korea.[3] Homeplus is the second largest retailer in South Korea,[4] behind Shinsegae Group's e-mart chain.

Homeplus operates its hypermarkets, super market chain 'Homeplus Express', convenience store '365 Plus' and online shopping service. Homeplus stores offer everything from groceries to clothes and appliances.[5]

Starting in 1997 with distribution business department of Samsung C&T Corporation, Homeplus opened its first hypermarket in Daegu and its second branch in West Busan.[6] In 1999, a joint venture between Samsung C&T and worldwide British retail chain Tesco, ‘SamsungTesco’ was launched, and it has grown into the second largest retailer in Korea by taking over 33 Homever(ex-Carrefour) stores since 2008. Since then Tesco had run the Homeplus until 2015 and the private equity fund, MBK Partners, acquired the company in October 2015 and is running the business.[7]
