First Interspar Opened In Croatia’s Istria Region
Spar Croatia has opened its first Interspar hypermarket in Istria, located in the Pula City Mall.
More than €3 million was invested in the state-of-the-art store design, which features a total sales area of 2,811 square metres.
The store is fully equipped with LED lighting, thereby saving up to 15% of the normal annual energy costs. Furthermore, the waste heat from the cooling system is used to supply warm water and heating to the entire sales area.
The new hypermarket offers 15,000 food products and 9,000 non-food products for shoppers. The offer includes an extensive range of local products including beer, wine, meat products, truffles, pasta and cheese.
Spar plans to continue expanding its retail network in Istria, especially with the Spar supermarket format.
The retailer recently re-opened its flagship Interspar hypermarket in Zagreb, located in the City Center One West Mall, after investing nearly €2 million to convert it to the new store format.
Novelties include the biggest selection of spices in the country (over 350), a special Nut Bar and sushi corner, as well as the exclusive Veggie by Neni private label product line, featuring Oriental flavours.
Earlier this month, Spar Croatia also opened a new supermarket in Stanjevac - New Zagreb (900 square metres).
