Monoprix S.A. (French pronunciation: [mɔnɔpʁi]) is a major French retail chain with its headquarters in Clichy, Hauts-de-Seine, France, near Paris.[1] The company's stores combine food retailing with hardware, clothing, household items and gifts.

It was a joint subsidiary of the Casino Group and Groupe Galeries Lafayette, with both partners holding 50% of the company each from 2000, until June 2012 when Casino acquired Galeries Lafayette's stake.[2] The Monoprix group had more than 300 stores and employed around 20,000 people in France at the end of 2008.[3] Monoprix is present in approximately 85% of all French towns with a population of more than 50,000.[3] In 2005, Monoprix had €3.3 billion in revenue.[3]

In 1997, Monoprix purchased its main rival, the Prisunic chain.
