Abstract

Social supermarkets (SSMs) play an increasingly important role in the Austrian retail scene. They sell food and consumer goods which they receive for free from manufacturers and retailers at a 70 percent discount rate to people at risk of poverty. This paper aims firstly to describe the phenomenon of SSMs in a retailing context and benchmarks it to other retail types with social mission as e.g. Charity Shops. Secondly, and in lack of literature on the topic, SSMs are related to theory and classified within a broader context of interorganisational relationships.
