Atdhetar Rama, 32, with 16 years of experience in the food retail sector, assumed management of the 500m² SPAR supermarket on Neutorstrasse in Salzburg-Riedenburg in December. Rama recently completed a multi-month trainee programme to become an independent SPAR entrepreneur. Starting as an apprentice at a SPAR store in Itzling, he progressed to store manager at a EUROSPAR Supermarket in Herrnau in 2015 before managing another large supermarket. Rama focuses on providing an extensive delicatessen and fresh meat department, along with a commitment to first-class customer service. This SPAR store meets the needs of Riedenburg residents, the old town, commuters, and students.

Patricia Sepetavc, Managing Director of SPAR Salzburg and Tyrol, was delighted with the opening of the modern and eco-friendly EUROSPAR Supermarket in Brixlegg. She welcomed Atdhetar Rama becoming an independent retailer, highlighting his leadership skills and positive approach with employees and customers.
