SPAR China held a store design seminar in Shanghai recently with great success. The seminar was chaired by SPAR China Managing Director, Yoep Man and attended by Senior Management and Store Design teams from SPAR Shandong, SPAR Guangdong, SPAR Shanxi, SPAR Beijing, SPAR Sichuan, SPAR Henan and SPAR Hubei.

Representatives from SPAR International, experts from IGD and strategic SPAR Partners such as Pepsi, Coca-Cola and Apple Pay were invited to participate and share their thoughts and insights on store design and the support needed to improve SPAR China’s retail design capabilities.

SPAR Shanxi food safety week

SPAR China Partner, SPAR Shanxi, recently led a Food Safety Week at the SPAR Qingxu Food Production Centre. The week was designed to promote quality food supply and build a strong food safety system. Leaders and officers from Shanxi CIQ (entry-exit inspection and quarantine bureau) and the Shanxi Branch of China Certification & Inspection Group attended the opening ceremony.

SPAR Guangdong Store Operation Summit

SPAR Guangdong organised the fourth Store Operation Summit at Huizhou Ocean Park Hotel, themed: Inherit, Change and Develop. Over the past few years, SPAR Guangdong has successfully organised three Store Manager Summits. This year, SPAR Guangdong re-branded the previous “Store Manager Summit” to “Store Operation Summit”, with SPAR Store Managers, Departmental Managers, and prestigious retail experts and scholars invited to participate. This is a great opportunity for delegates to get insights into future retail trends and store operations.

SPAR Sichuan Store Manager & Fresh Manager Operation meeting

SPAR Sichuan has run a Fresh Operations meeting focused on achieving a higher standard of fresh operations at store level by focusing on three key goals: Better quality, lower price and greater on-shelf availability. SPAR Sichuan’s General Manager, Mr Zhang, attended the meeting and provided valuable guidance. The Fresh Buying and Operations departments discussed work regarding planning, design, implementation and training. The Heads of HR, Food & Non-Food and General Merchandise departments were also present to discuss work plans and reports.
