German retailer Rewe said today (21 September) that it remains in talks over a possible investment in local discount group Plus.

Reports in Germany had claimed that Rewe was set to triumph in the battle for the Plus stores, which are owned by local conglomerate Tengelmann.

Tengelmann, the owner of US retail group A&P, told just-food last week that it is in talks over the future direction of the Plus business. Tengelmann is looking for a partner to grow the business and insists it remains “committed” to Plus.

A Rewe spokesman said the company is “in discussions” with Tengelmann over the future of Plus but revealed it is not the only interested party. He refused to comment further.

Officials at Tengelmann could not be reached for immediate comment.
