The licence for SPAR in Pakistan was granted on 1 January 2017 to Galaxy International, a private company owned by the Burque Group – a diverse business with experience in FMCG distribution.
The entry of the brand into Pakistan has been focused on the development of stores in the country’s largest city, Karachi. SPAR multi-format stores, ranging from small convenience to large supermarket, will expand over time across the country.
SPAR Pakistan closed the year with three stores featuring a 2,720m² retail sales area. Total retail sales for 2021 were €8.18 million, marking a reduction of 17% year-on-year.
The three stores have adopted the internationally developed SPAR Bakery concept, making the fresh offer a key differentiator for the retailer. 75% of the total retail offer is sourced domestically, supporting local entrepreneurs and suppliers. The remaining assortment on offer is procured through the global SPAR network.
In September 2021, SPAR Pakistan launched an e-commerce solution, which offers both a mobile app and a desktop option. Deliveries are made via third-party platforms, and during the first quarter of operation, sales were encouraging.
