This initiative, in support of local producers and small family businesses, has been running for 13 years now.

The instore INTERSPAR restaurant, with 157 seats, is open for customers from early morning until late at night. The menu includes an extensive breakfast buffet until 10:30 a.m. and hot meals until closing time. Guests can choose from the salad buffet or enjoy pasta, bowls, grilled food, or one of the local or international dishes available. The coffee bar offers a variety of coffee specialties and warm snacks throughout the day.

Focus on sustainability

All new INTERSPAR Hypermarkets implement the latest sustainability technologies. Store equipment, furniture, and shelves are equipped with energy-saving LED lighting. Additionally, the building has a concrete core activation system, and preparations for a photovoltaic system on the roof are underway.

Johannes Holzleitner, Managing Director of INTERSPAR Austria, commented on the new store: “Here in Gänserndorf, we were able to transform a very successful EUROSPAR Supermarket into a wonderful INTERSPAR Hypermarket. In the most modern local supermarket in the Marchfeld region, we now offer the people of Gänserndorf the full range of products on a 2,700m2 sales area, along with plenty of services and enjoyment from morning to night in our INTERSPAR restaurant.”
