The SPAR Supermarket at Spinnereiplatz, in the new 2000-watt Greencity quarter in Zurich-Leimbach, not only ensures local supplies for Greencity residents, but also presents a variety of foods for the community. “Greencity offers a unique combination of smart city lifestyle and warm village feeling”, said André Scherrer, SPAR Switzerland’s Managing Director SPAR New Business.

This 600m² SPAR store was built according to the latest technical energy standards. Extensive refrigeration is required for the rich assortment of fresh seasonal products including fruit &vegetables, cheese, dairy products and meat. For all fans of products from Zurich, the new Greencity SPAR offers a good local variety.

Pizzas, hot dogs, sandwiches, muesli, salads and numerous fresh-to-go products, and snacks round off the range. Customers can also enjoy the convenience of the small Bean Tree Café which has 12 seats or the ‘Smoothie Maker’ counter to prepare smoothies from fruit and vegetables on offer.

Another highlight is the generous SPAR Natural area with a large selection of organic, vegetarian and vegan products. Bulk filling solutions are being trialled in this area as well. Additionally, there is a walk-in cold room with chilled drinks. Wine lovers will particularly appreciate the well-stocked wine world. A fresh flowers and flower arrangements section completes the comprehensive ranges of this store.
