Spar China Opens New Store In Guangdong Province
Spar China has opened a new supermarket in Guangdong province, bringing its tally up to 412 stores across the nation.
The new stand-alone supermarket, located in the city of Dongguan, has a sales area of 1,300 square meters and nearly 6,000 SKUs, and will focus on meeting a growing customer demand for fresh products, Spar China said.
The supermarket will house a European-style bakery, and offer a fresh fruit- and vegetable-cutting service to improve the convenience of the fresh produce offer.
The supermarket will have a self-checkout system as well as a mobile scan-and-pay app that can be used for small volume purchases. The app had a 68% turnover rate on the first day of use, according to a press release issued by Spar China.
Spar Guangdong currently has a total of 45 Spar hypermarkets, 11 Spar supermarkets, and 31 Spar neighbourhood stores. The retailer opened its first store in the country in 2004.
