SPAR Switzerland Implements New EUROSPAR Concept In Two Stores

Retailer SPAR Switzerland has reopened two EUROSPAR stores in Davos – Davos-Platz and Davos-Dorf – featuring the new EUROSPAR concept.

The revamped stores aim to provide customers with everything they need for their weekly groceries in a modern shopping environment.


The newly designed EUROSPAR market-style stalls offer a wide range of fresh produce, with much of it from regional producers.

In addition to a diverse selection of fruit and vegetables, SPAR Switzerland has also installed a new zero-packaging dispenser solution for loose nuts.

Elsewhere, the cheese counter offers around 100 different varieties.


Regional sourcing is an important element of the butchery department in Davos-Dorf, the retailer noted.

The EUROSPAR store offers meat products from the Davos/Prättigau region as well as homemade specialities.

Fresh bread is delivered daily to the store from a local bakery and specialty baked goods from another local producer.

Both stores provide customers with an extensive choice of locally sourced groceries and wines.


The EUROSPAR Supermarket in Davos-Platz features a self-service café corner with freshly brewed Bean Tree coffee.

Both stores offer a large selection of freshly prepared food-to-go meals and snacks as well as chilled soft drinks for customers on the go.

Self-scanning tills, now available in both stores, offer additional convenience to shoppers.

Regionality At SPAR Switzerland

The EUROSPAR Supermarket in Davos-Platz is managed by Laura Barroso, while Patrick Furrer manages the store in Davos-Dorf.


Together, the stores employ about 20 team members, creating employment opportunities in the local community.

Both EUROSPAR stores operating in Davos opened in 1994 and have been operated by Puracenter AG for the past five years. The company runs seven other SPAR Supermarkets in the region and also processes local milk and traditional cheese in its local specialties.

The close-knit cooperation between Puracenter AG, local farmers, and food producers, ensures consumers can access regional produce.

SPAR Switzerland identified several stores which could be converted to the new EUROSPAR format when the flagship store in Schänis was launched in 2021.
