For love of the mountains

For love of the mountains, almost 900 people work in 110 Sherpa supermarkets in the Alps, Jura Mountains and the Pyrenees. With a presence in 97 mountain resorts, Sherpa stores chose their name in reference to the famous tribe of Nepalese porters who by their courage and strength ensure the success of climbing expeditions on Himalayan slopes.

The name Sherpa emphasises our distance from other supermarket chains, synonymous with an urban landscape and city pace of life. It speaks of our conviction that food is a basic need in the mountains and summarises our mission: to provide food supplies in mountain regions!

Active in their resorts and often working in partnership with the tourist office or ski school and in conjunction with local small producers, Sherpa stores are very much part of the mountain landscape.
