The product range was extended and includes a new ready meals section. Additionally, it includes a new instore cafeteria and various specialised gourmet sections.

Gourmet sections

The SPAR store’s gourmet sections are impressive, particularly the ‘Cheese Cellar,’ which offers over 400 cheese varieties from local, national, and international suppliers. Special signage helps customers identify the type of cheese (goat, sheep, cow, or mixed) and whether it is pasteurised or unpasteurised. Additionally, the store features a ‘Ham Corner’ where customers can find excellent sliced serrano ham.

Wine and beer cellars

This store also boasts an extensive wine cellar featuring over 500 wines, with a focus on local wines from the area. Customers can enjoy tastings of 21 wine varieties and 2 types of champagne through modern glass dispensers in the gourmet corner. The renovated SPAR Supermarket rolled out a new ‘Beer Cellar’ with over 300 beer options categorised by their origin. The SPAR store also introduces a unique feature – a live cocktail-tasting area. This space allows customers to sample drinks from various brands during special events and promotions, adding a novel and engaging element to the shopping experience.
