Lou Jardin, Managing Director of SPAR Australia, was delighted with the outcome, which reflects the investments the company has made in the business. Over the past ten years, SPAR Australia has invested heavily in both the quality of its products and the expertise of its retailers. Independent SPAR retailers have significantly invested in their store’s look and feel. SPAR retailers also significantly contribute to their local community.
SPAR Australia has developed an extensive range of corporate and own brand products that sets it apart from other convenience stores. SPAR Own Brand products have seen significant improvement in range and quality, but most importantly, they are priced competitively.
Lou Jardin added that being part of SPAR International has allowed them to further increase customer satisfaction.
“Our partnership with SPAR International has provided access to international trends where SPAR is the leader in convenience in many European countries. You add all these together, and SPAR is producing a winning formula that has seen us outperform the market”, he says.
