Salling Group is Denmark’s largest retail group, serving 11 million customers each week. The company comprises the retail chains føtex, Bilka and Netto, the toy chain BR, Salling department stores and associated online stores. Netto also operates stores in Germany and Poland, and until the end of June 2019 it also had stores in Sweden. Salling Group is wholly owned by the Salling Foundations. This means that where previously we were obliged to pay dividends to several shareholders, now we can invest our profits in two places: In the business in the form of investments in new and modernised stores as well as sustainable projects and initiatives. In the foundations, which distribute donations to good causes in Denmark. Since 2012, the Salling Foundations have donated more than DKK 1bn to culture, sport, charity, education and research.
