Sogegross Becomes Second Largest Cash And Carry Group in Italy

Sogegross Cash & Carry has acquired four outlets in the Lombardy Region, making it the second largest Cash & Carry group in Italy.

The Genoa-based company now owns a total of 21 stores in the northern Italian regions of Lombardy, Liguria, Emilia Romagna, Piedmont and Tuscany.

The outlets were purchased from Lombardini Group and are located in Dalmine (Bergamo), Costa Masnaga (Lecco), Montano Lucino (Como), and in Cernusco sul Naviglio (Milan).

All 110 staff will continue to work in the new stores.

The stores will use the historical brand Gros Market, with the incorporation of the Sogegross logo as part of the insignia, to emphasize that the shops will operate under the same management as before.


Sogegross Group is a wholesaler active in Italy’s grocery sector, supplying frozen food, fresh fruits, vegetables, beverages, baked products, meat products, and general groceries.

Besides Cash & Carry outlets, the company also has 56 Basko supermarkets and superstores, 41 Doro discount outlets, and 116 Ekon convenience stores.
