SPAR Gran Canaria continues to modernise and optimise the energy efficiency of its retail network, opening a renovated SPAR Supermarket in Telde.

Modern appearance

The SPAR Supermarket in Las Longueras reopened its doors in March, following a complete renovation of both its interior and exterior appearance. The 280m2 store has been transformed with a view to providing a more enjoyable shopping experience for customers.

The SPAR store maintains its 18-member team who provide a professional and friendly service across the store. There are areas dedicated to fresh local produce within the fruit and vegetable, bakery, charcuterie, and butchery departments.

Increase energy efficiency

During the renovation, a special emphasis was placed on energy efficiency. This includes the installation of new LED lighting, inclusion of electronic shelf labels to reduce paper usage, updates to the refrigeration units and the installation of advanced closed and vertical refrigerators to optimise energy consumption. These measures reflect SPAR Gran Canaria’s renowned commitment to sustainability and reducing carbon footprint. With an investment of approximately EUR 325,000, SPAR Gran Canaria continues its commitment to developing more environmentally friendly stores.

Focus on sustainability

SPAR Gran Canaria continues to roll out its modern store layout concept which integrate numerous sustainable features, reflecting its focus on meeting certain sustainable goals. The retail chain’s network of stores on the island are committed to the local community as seen by the focus on supporting local producers.

About SPAR Spain

SPAR Spain was founded in 1959 when a group of wholesalers who wished to join an international organisation came together. As a result, the brand became the first voluntary trading chain to be established in Spain, having been granted a license by SPAR International. Together, 13 regional SPAR wholesalers actively continue the expansion of the brand across the country.
