From draper’s shop to retail group
Salling Group’s history stretches back more than 100 years. Over the years, the company has developed dramatically, and what began as a small shop in Aarhus is today an international retailing group.
In 1906, Ferdinand Salling opened his draper’s shop in Aarhus. The shop gradually grew, and in 1948 the first part of Salling department store was opened. After his death in 1953, his son Herman Salling took over the business and began to modernise and expand Salling’s department stores.
Just like his father, Herman Salling was an entrepreneur, and in 1960 he established Jysk Supermarked in order to realise his plans to build chains of supermarkets and department stores. The three retail chains, føtex (1960), Bilka (1970) and Netto (1981), were all created to support new shopping habits and changes in lifestyle.
100% owned by the Salling Foundations since 2017
In order to finance its ambitions for growth, in 1964 Herman Salling invited A.P. Møller-Maersk to become a partner in Jysk Supermarked with an ownership interest of 50%. In the same year, the company changed name to Dansk Supermarked.
In November 2017, the Salling Foundations acquired the remaining shares in the group, which today is 100% owned by Salling Group.
