Customers have been very positive about the extensive fresh offer which can be found at this SPAR supermarket, in the heart of Pepiliyana. The wide array of fruits and vegetables, extensive bakery selection, and  freshest meats and seafood are complemented by the sensational range and offers available. The varieties of cakes, coffee and convenience foods available at SPAR is unmatched in the local supermarket industry. From the Bean Tree Café to the delectable spread of ready to eat meals that cater for breakfast, lunch and dinner, SPAR offers enough variety to please the whole family.

Mr. Wayne Hodson, CEO of SPAR Sri Lanka, warmly welcomed everyone to the latest SPAR Supermarket and commented that this is another great store where the whole family can shop. The broad range of local, organic, gourmet foods and imported products as well as the ambience and the exceptional customer service that SPAR is renowned for, add value to the residents of Pepiliyana.

The local and well-known non-food Abans brand has also embraced the opportunity to work alongside SPAR Sri Lanka and has a well-stocked mobility store, located right at the entrance to this SPAR supermarket. Supporting local businesses is one element of SPAR Sri Lanka’s dedication to sustainability, ethical sourcing and community involvement.
