SPAR Switzerland adds 24/7 SPAR Express store to its retail network

July 24, 2023 IN THE CATEGORY: Store openings

On 13 July, SPAR Switzerland opened its third 24/7 SPAR Express store in the village of Surava. This store operates without any staff and offers about 500 essential food items on 15m2. Following the successful launch of the first unattended 24/7 SPAR Express at Zurich’s Sihlqui bus terminal in February, the second Go24 retail unit followed soon in Rueras, where the Go24 shop is the only food shopping destination.

Product offer

The 15m2 SPAR Go24-shop in Surava caters to everyday shopping needs. Alongside groceries, drinks and hygiene products, the store offers an extensive range of fresh produce, including vegetables, bread, dairy products, and meat. Regional products such as milk, yoghurt, butter, and cheese are sourced from Puracenter AG in Lenzerheide, which also operates the store. Sales are monitored through an app to ensure a continuous supply of fresh food items.

Access to the store

Customers can enter the store after scanning a QR code at the entrance and accepting the terms and conditions. The purchases are also scanned using a smartphone while payment is made easy and quick by Twint, debit, or credit card. For customers’ safety, the store is equipped with cameras and sensors. If customers have questions or face any challenges in the shopping process, information is provided online instantly.
