Spar Ireland is preparing to launch a new concept Spar c-store in partnership with Spar International.

The store, due to open in Dublin next month, will be used to test retail innovations for the whole of the Spar network.

The 5,000 sq ft store in Camden Street, Dublin, will be Spar’s biggest in the city.

BWG chief executive Leo Crawford said the store was larger than a standard Spar. It will major on home meal replacement and deli, with an expanded fresh produce range.
