Designed to offer an easy, fast, convenient, and quality shopping experience, a new DESPAR Express opened on 29 July in Savona, in the Northwest of Italy. Located in the heart of the city, the store responds to the lifestyle needs of today’s consumers. This is the third store to be opened by independent retailers, Donatella Gaggero and Angelo Melara.

A destination department of this store is the food service department, which offers a large selection of typical, regional products. The DESPAR Express store has a good balance between convenience and quality, offering a high service, and providing shoppers an enjoyable atmosphere. DESPAR Italia stores also include a large range of high-quality, fresh products.

Passion for retail and people, and commitment to the region, are values that led these successful retailers to open their third DESPAR store in the province of Savona.

“Every day, we and our team make ourselves available to the community. We invest all our energy to guarantee a service that meets customer’s needs”, said Donatella Gaggero, owner of the new store and of the existing DESPAR Supermarkets in Spotorno and Bergeggi.

“Also in this store, we strive to offer high-quality service to local residents, creating an opportunity for connection between consumers to enjoy the excellence of the local food and wine tradition”, reiterated retailer Angelo Melara, placing the emphasis on local products.

About SPAR Italy

SPAR Italy, known locally as DESPAR Italia, was first granted the SPAR Brand’s licence in 1959. The first store opened in 1960. With it, SPAR became the first partnership of retailers and wholesalers to operate in the country. In addition, SPAR Italy licenses regional partners, all of whom work together to grow the brand across the country.

The DESPAR Partners operate stores under three formats: DESPAR Neighbourhood Supermarkets, EUROSPAR Supermarkets, and INTERSPAR Hypermarkets. Many of the larger format stores are company-owned, reflecting the scale of investment required. While the company achieves most of its turnover through these larger format stores, the independently owned neighbourhood supermarkets remain vital.
