June 29, 2023 IN THE CATEGORY: Store openings

In April, the SPAR Spain partner for the Girona region Valvi Supermercats launched a new SPAR Supermarket in the town of Peralada. Continuing to grow the brand, in May, they opened another SPAR Supermarket in Calldetenes, Osona, and a convenience SPAR Express store in Lloret de Mar.

SPAR in Peralada

The SPAR Supermarket in Peralada opened in a new building that blends with the traditional style of the area. It also provides the convenience of a private car park. The opening reinforces SPAR’s commitment to offering a nearby shopping option for families and households, meeting their daily or weekly shopping needs. SPAR Spain partners offer a range of consumer goods and fresh produce, including regional specialities.

The supermarket aims to cater to the local community, featuring products sourced from producers in the Alt Empordà region. In both the fresh produce and bakery departments, customers can ask for professional advice or use self-serve options. The 11 colleagues running the store provide assistance in the butchery, charcuterie, and fish counters, striving to deliver excellent service.

SPAR Spain partner Valvi Supermercats is dedicated to renewable energy and has installed solar panels at its facilities. The SPAR Supermarket de Peralada has a total of 126 photovoltaic panels, providing an installed power of 56.7 kW. Through this installation, the store has gained substantial energy savings.

SPAR Calldetenes

The new SPAR Supermarket in Calldetenes has a retail sales area of 265m² and employs six team members. They provide a wide range of services to customers, with a special emphasis on offering local products from the Osona region. In addition, this SPAR store has sections for deli, fresh food, bakery, and packaged meat. There are also dedicated sections for frozen products and dietary items.

The new SPAR Supermarkets operated by Valvi Supermercats are designed to cater to families and households, providing a convenient shopping experience for their daily and weekly needs. The stores offer a diverse selection of consumer goods and fresh produce in various formats. Both supermarkets feature an impressive wine cellar called “Vinoteca VNTC Valvi,” where customers can explore a notable collection of wines, cava, and liquors.

SPAR Express

A SPAR Express store opened in the heart of the coastal town of Lloret de Mar in May. This addition to the store network showcases the company’s commitment to innovation by introducing modern and convenient proximity supermarkets. Having a 150m² sales area, the store is staffed by five colleagues who offer a wide variety of products, with a specialisation in ready meals.

Customers can enjoy the added convenience of a cafe instore, along with outdoor seating where they can enjoy their meals. Additionally, the store stocks essential items to cater to the needs of tourists spending their holidays along the Costa Brava coastline.

Valvi Supermercats is a 100% family-owned business from Girona. It holds the distinction of being the first network of independent supermarkets in the province, reflecting its local roots and commitment to the community.

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.

The head office is in Barcelona. It provides buying, marketing, communications, and brand support to the 13 regional partners. Together, the SPAR operators actively continue the expansion of the brand across the country.
