SPAR International continues expansion and modernization of China stores
SPAR China is continuing its ongoing investment in the expansion and modernization of its store estate as well as the development of a modern supply chain. In 2018, this expansion was particularly evident in Guangdong, Shandong and Zhangjiakou, where SPAR store openings and revamps continued right until the end of the year.
Customer experience is the key priority for SPAR retailers in China, with much attention being given to the in-store environment as well as products and services, using new technologies such as facial recognition. SPAR China now operates 416 stores with 1,033,000 sq m of retail selling space.
