Spar Hypermarket has opened its flagship store at Tawar Mall, featuring a wide range of food, as well as non-food, items.
Spar, a leading voluntary food and household goods retail chain globally, is operated by Al Wataniya International Holding, the licence partner for Qatar.
“We opened our first supermarket at B Square Mall at Al Thumama area in November last year and very quickly we opened our second and flagship store at Tawar Mall,” Spar’s human resources director Maher Alhousari told Gulf Times during the inauguration last week.
The new store features various quadrants and sections for big groceries, health and beauty products, organic and ethnic foods, and non food items, among others. Another section dubbed as ‘My Bake Box’ is dedicated for pastries, sweets, and freshly baked breads.
Shoppers can also select an array of fish and sea foods at Spar’s ‘Daily Catch’ section while freshly cooked meals are readily available in one of its sections. Beef, chicken and other meat products are displayed at its ‘Bbq Broil Grill Roast’ area.
“We are basing on a strong strategy on freshness, quality, choice and service and this is Spar is all about,” Alhousari noted.
“We don’t compete with anyone, we have our own strategy, we are building our own stores and we just want to add value to our beloved customers,” he added.
While Spar welcomes all suppliers, Alhousari pointed out that they will continue offering different kinds of Qatari products in its two supermarkets.
Spar vows to cater its customers with a wide range of choices and the products they are looking for year round in a bid to further increase its footfall.
Asked about Spar’s expansion plans, Alhousari said they will announce “another two surprises” before the end of the year.
Spar began operating with one Dutch store in 1932 and grew to more than 12,500 in 44 countries on four continents, receiving more than 13 million people daily.
The brand, founded on the principle of joint co-operation between wholesalers and retailers, focuses on six key areas of ‘Responsible Retailing’: health, sourcing, community, environment, climate and people.
