Makro Profile

Global cash and carry retailer Makro sells a vast selection of products to small businesses that hold a membership card. Among the cleaning products and confection is a small range of wines and spirits, from well-known brands to own-label products. Among the latter is the Makro-owned Glengannon, a 5-year-old blended malt bottled at 40% abv.

Makro History

The first Makro store was opened in Amsterdam in 1968 by SHV Holdings, which was founded in 1896. During the 1970s and 1980s, the company expanded to other European countries, as well as opening stores in South Africa, Asia, and North and South America.

In 1989, Makro stores in the United States were sold to Kmart, which converted them to Pace Membership Warehouses.

Makro’s stores are operated under franchise agreement, by a spectrum of different operators around the world, the largest of which are Metro Group (25 countries including Germany and Netherlands under the Metro and Makro banners) and Booker Group (UK).
