Responsible Retailing: Community Involvement

January 12, 2018 IN THE CATEGORY: Responsible retailing

At SPAR, our commitment to the communities we serve extends beyond providing a high quality, value-for-money shopping experience. It also involves supporting those in need by volunteering time or generating funds for charities, bringing the local community together through SPAR-sponsored sporting events, and promoting educational initiatives.

Through all of these activities, SPAR adds value to the communities it serves. We have a growing global presence in more than 44 countries around the world and are fundamentally driven by our committed independent retailers who win the trust and loyalty of their local communities.

Charity partnerships lie at the heart of many of our outreach programmes, meeting the needs of SPAR communities at a local, national and regional level. SPAR charity partnerships are seen to address various issues, such as raising funds for the sick, providing opportunities to the disadvantaged, and enhancing access to basic human needs. This is all realised through our SPAR Partner commitments to instore campaigns, sports fundraisers and community outreach projects.

SPAR Partners further give back to their communities by placing specific emphasis on engagement with the younger generation. For SPAR, education lies beyond providing nutritional information and promoting dietary diversity. In line with this, SPAR has tailored initiatives which provide children with better opportunities, enhanced skills and a greater degree of support for their growth and development.
