SPAR was introduced to France in 1955 with current partner, Casino Group, being granted the licence to operate the brand in the 1990s. There are ongoing developments in relation to both the store formats and the customer offer. As a result of the scale of Casino operations, SPAR has benefitted from the existing distribution network and has expanded nationwide.
Shoppers continue to favour local produce and products as well as neighbourhood stores. The SPAR concept, operated primarily by independent retailers, fits this trend and has seen a rejuvenation of its offer.
