EUROSPAR Pinsk offers a new shopping experience for the 6,000 residents currently living in close proximity of the store, catering for everyday needs; a sharp contrast to the small grocery retail solutions previously available. Plans are in place which will see the population of the residential area growing to 10,000. The opening ceremony attracted a lot of attention among shoppers, impressed by the new supermarket.
At the opening ceremony Valery Litvinov, Regional Director of Unifood CJSC, a subsidiary of SPAR Belarus’ partner Almi Group, said: “This new EUROSPAR Supermarket meets modern European retail standards. We have learnt from Best Practice examples of SPAR stores around the world and have implemented these learnings here. Thank you for supporting us today, we look forward to serving you with pride in the future.”
In addition to a modern store design and an extensive fresh food offer, the store features the latest retail technologies and instore solutions including a food court area, where customers have access to a wide selection of ready-to-cook and ready-to-heat meals.
A highlight of the store is the cooking demonstration area, where customers can also join workshops. The coffee corner has been welcomed by the local residents, taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi available instore. With its long opening hours, from 8 am to 12 pm, the new EUROSPAR Supermarket is also providing a convenience solution.
The rollout of two additional EUROSPAR Supermarkets in Belarus is planned in the near future.
