SPAR Norway is celebrating its 30th anniversary and to mark the occasion, independent SPAR retailer, Per Irgens Skerdal, wrote his fourth script reflecting the journey of SPAR throughout the decades.

SPAR values and community involvement are constant, even in a time of ever-increasing pace of change. The commercial celebrating this milestone anniversary of SPAR Norway highlights how the brand has been building its presence, supporting its retailers, valued shoppers, and suppliers throughout the decades in the market. SPAR Norway intends to continue growing its brand presence, remaining a welcoming and friendly space for its customers, in the future.

SPAR Norway’s parent company NorgesGruppen ASA is the market leader in the Norwegian grocery market operating two retail formats in the country: EUROSPAR and SPAR. Per Irgens Skjerdal runs a store in Aurland, southern Norway. In addition to being a proud retailer, Per is a regional and national representative in the SPAR Norway Merchant Council and a retailer representative on the SPAR International Executive Guild.
