“We are really delighted that investor MID Grupation entered into this co-operation, supporting us with the opening of the first INTERSPAR Hypermarket in Istria in the shopping centre of Pula. For the past 10 years, we have sought the ideal location and were pleased to have finally found it” said SPAR Croatia Managing Director, Helmut Fenzl, at the opening ceremony.
More than €3 million was invested by SPAR Croatia in the state-of-the-art store design of this latest INTERSPAR Hypermarket. This impressive store with a total sales area of 2,811m² incorporates a number of modern technologies. It is fully equipped with LED lighting thereby saving up to 15% of the normal annual energy costs. Furthermore, the waste heat from the cooling system is used to supply warm water and heating to the entire sales area. The investment into these technologies reflect the integration of sustainable solutions by SPAR Croatia.
The new hypermarket offers an extensive range for shoppers with 15,000 food products and 9,000 non-food products available. Of course, in the latest INTERSPAR, the support of local producers is evident, with an extensive range of local products including beer, wine, meat products, truffles, pasta and cheese in the offer.
During the festive opening, Mr Fenzl thanked the city of Pula and the entire team involved in supporting this project and confirmed that SPAR Croatia looks forward to continuing the co-operation with all partners. The expansion of SPAR Croatia in the region of Istria will be strengthened with the focus on the opening of SPAR Supermarkets in the future.
