SPAR Scotland trade show set for 23 September

SPAR Scotland is to hold its second virtual trade show on 23 September 2021.

The event, which has the theme ‘One Family, One Vision’, will showcase various key business initiatives, products and services. SPAR Scotland will update suppliers, retailers and colleagues on its transformation journey and growth. There will be suppliers exhibiting, presentations from SPAR Scotland and key supplier partners, live Q&A sessions and promotional deals on the day for retailers.

SPAR Scotland has a proven track record of delivering NPD with suppliers, who will also have an opportunity to increase the distribution and volumes of key products with a new platform for securing orders developed for this year’s event.

In addition, the event will include a presentation by former Royal Marine Commando Andy Grant, who will share his inspirational story of overcoming loss and adversity.

In Scotland, there are 107 SPAR stores owned by CJ Lang plus over 200 independently-owned SPAR stores. SPAR Scotland has seen more independent retailers join SPAR as their chosen partner over the last 12 months.

Colin McLean, CEO of SPAR Scotland, said: “We have a robust recruitment plan which has enabled us to recruit a significant number of additional stores already in the first six months of this financial year. Independent retailers are attracted by the SPAR brand and our market-leading position because we have demonstrated how we have the right solution to meet the challenges they have faced in the convenience market over the past two years.

“We are helping independent retailers improve profitability through better prices and promotions, better delivery and distribution, better service and all with our unique SPAR brand to all corners of Scotland.”

He added: “SPAR is the leading symbol group across the UK for independent retailers. There will be no better place to showcase our results and what we have available than at our virtual tradeshow which takes place on 23 September.

“Here people will be able to see first-hand just how well we can compete, and the benefits SPAR Scotland can bring to their business.”
