Customer First Store Designs & Store Innovation

Our stores are designed to reflect the way your customers shop, driving additional sales and profit.

SPAR has always worked closely with its independent retailers to make sure you’re supported with an innovative store design that drives sales, maximises cash profit and delivers sustainable growth. All based on our extensive experience in convenience retail.

Today, it’s based on a wide range of data-driven insights too; this isn’t one size fits all. Extensive basket analysis means we understand your customer shopping missions when they visit your store. In-depth research on the different types of convenience store shoppers means we know which of our missions are most important to them. And through our partnership with CACI we have market leading tools that mean we can provide local insights for your store.

Whether you’re planning a store refit or a refresh, we’re here to help you make it happen. Here are just a few of the things you can expect:

  • Flexible store design allowing you to invest in new solutions at the right time for your business
  • Designed with smart energy saving solutions in mind, so you can reduce running costs
  • Range of in-store services available, including Daily Deli, in-store bakery, and hot coffee solutions
  • Help with store refit costs via co-investment opportunities through our SPAR Wholesalers
  • Flagship stores showcasing the latest SPAR store formats, so you can experience the formats in a live environment.
