About SPAR

Our Values


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 has always been there for you. Packed with all the essentials for everyday living, we’re your friendly neighbourhood store – convenient, close and always open when you need us.

There for you...

Then and now

It started with one Dutch store in 1932. Now SPAR is the world’s largest food retail chain. Over 13,000 stores. 48 countries. And in the UK alone, approximately 2,600 stores, around 40,000 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

SPAR has a zero tolerance approach to Modern Slavery of any kind within our business and/or supply chain and all of us at SPAR have a responsibility to be alert to the risks of Modern Slavery no matter how small.

SPAR and Marie Curie

We are delighted to be extending our support to Marie Curie who, like SPAR, are there for everyone in the community. As partners, we'll be helping to raise money for Marie Curie, both internally and within our stores. To read more about our partnership with Marie Curie, visit our Marie Curie hub.
