SPAR is the original format and as it is operated by all SPAR Partners, is the cornerstone of the SPAR Brand. It is designed for local neighbourhoods in both urban and rural areas and provides shoppers with everything they need on a daily basis.
With a sales area of 200 to 700 sq., the flexibility of this format makes it suitable for all retail markets. The majority of SPAR stores are independently owned and operated and thus have an important place at the heart of the community.
EUROSPAR is our larger supermarket format and is aimed at weekly family shopping needs. EUROSPAR Supermarkets have a retail sales area totaling between 700 and 2,000 sq. and are found in shopping malls, as stand-alone supermarkets or in city centers where space permits a large supermarket.
The larger sales floor allows for a full service assortment that is both large and varied in fresh foods, groceries and non-foods, but can also include a strong Food-to-Go offer. The wide choice and parking facilities makes EUROSPAR the preferred choice for the weekend shopping trip.
The INTERSPAR Hypermarket is the largest SPAR format with a sales area in excess of 2,000 sq. . It is focused on being a one-stop shop with the largest selection in both food and non-food items.
The format can be adapted to suit standalone, purpose built sites as well as large shopping centers where INTERSPAR can play a standout role in attracting shoppers. The format is particularly successful in Central Europe, China, Russia and India.
