The United Kingdom (UK) became a member of SPAR in 1956 when SPAR International granted a group of independent wholesalers the SPAR licence. There are five regional partners in the UK with strategically placed Distribution Centres (DCs) in each region. A central office, located in London, provides national marketing and buying services for the group and supports the development of the brand.
SPAR has led the convenience market in the UK for many years but has faced increasing competition. Always innovative, the five regional partners have continued to grow the brand. Throughout the UK, a combination of independently-owned licensed retailers and company-owned stores can be found, spanning forecourts, airports, train stations, city centres, and local neighbourhoods.
