The city of Meizhou in the Chinese province of Guangdong has welcomed its first two SPAR stores – bringing the brand to the local Meizhou community for the first time.

SPAR Wanda was the first to open. It was unveiled on 23 September and set the tone for SPAR’s expansion into Meizhou. The store was designed and developed in the hypermarket format, covering an area of 8,800m2, on the second and third floors of the Wanda Shopping Mall. In total, 20,000 products are on offer in this store, from fresh food and grocery items to fashion accessories.

The SPAR Wanda opening was followed by the launch of SPAR Jailing Aoyuan on 28 September. This too is a hypermarket, covering 10,000m2 and three floors.

SPAR Guangdong has plans in place to open more SPAR stores in Meizhou, with a total sales area of 40,000m2, creating more than 2,000 jobs in the next three years. The third SPAR store in Meizhou is set to open in December.
