Origins is a retail chain that belongs to Metyur S.A., the largest retailer in Yuris. It was the first supermarket chain operating in Yuris, starting in 1965, when the first store was opened in Icónico, Nelyto City. Today, Origins remains a reference in Yuris food retail sector. Its stores are mainly located in large malls or in alone stores on the major Yurin cities. The company is also investing in its internationalization.


Modelo - Icónico (Nelyto City), the first food retail store of Metyur S.A.

Since 1959, Metyur S.A. manifested its intention to invest on the food retail market. That was accomplished when the first Modelo store (previous name of Origins), was opened in Icónico, Nelyto City. Its large dimension and the availability not only of the supermarket but also small shops made Modelo a success case. In fact, all Modelo stores followed Icónico’s example model.

Two years later, Modelo – TBD, in Ordyo City, and Modelo - TBD, in Botiliana, were opened. The company was well succeeded overtime, so it kept expanding reaching a number of 500 store in 1983.

In 1984, Modelo starts to produce food products with its own brand, making it cheaper.

In 1998, Metyur suffered an internal restructuring when Gerard Gunvor Altamura became the group’s CEO. By these means, Modelo changed its name to Origins, in a operation of about 6 million scudos. In that year, the chain already counted 619 stores around the coutry. On the same year, the first Urban Origins is opened in TBD, Ordyo City.

In 2001, Paper Cut is created, Metyur’s office products brand, only sold in stores from the group.

In 2006, Place Orgins is created, making the company stores to reach virtually all Yurin population. Nowadays, Origins has 803 stores and employs about 100 thousand people.
