Innovative technologies, like vertical refrigeration chambers and LED lighting, have been implemented, significantly cutting down energy consumption.

In the same month, SPAR Botánico, located in the tourist area of Maspalomas, was reopened, now enjoying a bright modern store design with a clearer layout and offering innovative services. The 450m2 store has improved its accessibility and makes use of energy efficient technologies.

The fresh fruit and vegetables, with a focus on local products, a deli department and instore bakery offering freshly baked bread has been enthusiastically welcomed by local shoppers. The wide aisles as well as the food areas offer customers more convenience and an enjoyable shopping experience. Energy efficient refrigeration and lighting systems are in line with the new SPAR store concept implemented on the entire island, focusing on sustainability and environmental impact.

SPAR Balos, located in Vecindario in the Southeast of the island, was reopened, featuring more convenience and an improved shopping experience through a more spacious store layout and brighter interior.
