Then and now
It started with one Dutch store in 1932. Now SPAR is the world’s largest food retail chain. 12,322 stores. 34 countries. And in the UK alone, over 2,400 stores, 50,000 friendly staff and a turnover of £3bn+. You could say we’ve come a long way.
Global brand, local touch
We don’t just serve the community, we’re part of it. As SPAR is a ‘symbol’ group, our retailers remain independent while enjoying global brand benefits. And with local initiatives, fundraising, support for local suppliers and farmers, we’re always giving a little back.
Doing the right thing
For nine years we have been helping vulnerable children through our support of the NSPCC and ChildLine. And for the last two years we have been avid supporters of the NSPCC Schools Service, - raising over £4.6m in the process.
To us, community is everything. And we’re proud to be a part of it. Our conveniently situated stores are owned and run by locals, for locals. Providing the essentials. Serving with a smile. Supporting local suppliers, schools and charities. There for you. There for everyone.
Whether it’s fresh food, fresh-looking stores or fresh ideas, we always strive to bring you the best. From scrumptious seasonal fruit to locally sourced vegetables to innovative ways to shop and pay - we firmly believe fresh is best.
If you’re not satisfied, neither are we. That’s why quality is at the heart of everything we do. Everything we offer. Everything we stand for. From clean, welcoming stores to our extensive range of food and drink. And it’s why our own-brand range has scooped multiple awards!
We may be just round the corner, but we go the extra mile. Courteous. Friendly. Always open when you need us. Always open to new initiatives like Parcel Service and Apple Pay. We’re part of the community we care about. And we never forget we’re there for you.

SPAR are very proud to have supported the NSPCC and ChildLine for 9 years. In this time our employees, customers and suppliers have raised thousands of pounds through a variety of fundraising initiatives: from bike rides, golf days, fancy dress and cause related marketing products.
Since 2013, SPAR funds have helped the NSPCC reach out to almost 140,000 children aged 9 to 11 in primary schools across the UK through their pioneering NSPCC Schools Service. The NSPCC have now visited more than 15,000 schools reaching over 1 million children. Together we are there for children in primary schools just around the corner from your local SPAR store. With our continuing support of the NSPCC we will reach even more children.
From the 15th Feb to 13th March, pick up a packet of SPAR ENJOY LOCAL Sausages and we will donate 10p to the NSPCC! Ask in store today for more details.
