Spar Anounces New Store Openings In Spain
Spar has added to its store portfolio in Spain, with the opening of new locations in Alicante, Barcelona, Seville and other cities, as well as undertaking a number of refurbishments.
A wide mix of stores was opened in the fourth quarter of 2020, with Spar largely following the global trend towards proximity retailing, opening a large number of small convenience stores rather than large-scale operations.
Spar has also experimented with its new stores, offering services such as home delivery, various fresh counters, and region-specific produce sections, among other initiatives.
The group also integrated elements of sustainability into the new and refurbished stores, with energy-efficient fridges installed in a recently refurbished location in Gran Canaria.
The expansion and refurbishments have created 134 jobs, spread across the various locations.
