INTERSPAR in Samobor

The INTERSPAR Hypermarket was built using the latest store design concepts, featuring a great layout and modern shopfitting. The hypermarket offers more than 22,000 products. An extensive choice of SPAR Own Brand products and locally sourced ranges sold under the labels ‘Gardens of Croatia’ and ‘Exclusive for SPAR’ are available. Highlights of this store are the butchery offering fresh meat, the fish market, and a large selection of ready-to-eat meals, contributing to the premium shopping experience.

Four self-service cash registers have been installed, and 110 parking spaces are available to customers. The new INTERSPAR Hypermarket offers employment opportunities to 70 new team members.

On the opening day, SPAR Croatia donated over €2,600 to the local fire brigade, showing SPAR’s strong community support.

The store offers employment to 32 new team members, growing the total number of SPAR employees to over 170 across the seven SPAR stores in the Varaždin county .

The store offers consumers more than 10,000 products, including locally sourced goods like dairy products from manufacturer Euro-milk, the supplier of SPAR Croatia’s S-Budget Own Brand products.

About SPAR Croatia

The first SPAR store opened in Croatia in 2005, following the licence agreement between ASPIAG (Austrian SPAR International AG) and SPAR International in 2004.

As a member of the ASPIAG group, SPAR Croatia can access a wide range of own brand products. Brand development has primarily taken place through SPAR Supermarkets and INTERSPAR Hypermarkets, both through the take-over of existing chains and opening new stores.
