Migros, Thoroughly Uncapitalist
Home > Business Guide > Table of Contents > Government > Migros

Most European countries have witnessed the great battle between small grocers and supermarkets during the past twenty years. Switzerland is no exception, and the latter have prevailed with the biggest chains being Manor, Coop and Migros. The biggest chain, Migros, is virtually a non-profit organization. It has 38 shopping centers and 499 super-markets in Switzerland, offering normal supermarket goods at bargain prices (that is, for Switzerland) as well as many services (travel, banking, gas, fitness and language schools). As a cooperative, the Swiss own Migros and no one can hold more than one share worth 10 francs.
