As we head into the autumn season, SPAR partners in China continue to expand our brand network.
On September 10, a new SPAR premium supermarket opened in Jinan, Shandong. The location is close to the Thousand-Buddha Mountain (Qianfo Shan), Jinan’s largest downtown park. Within the sales area of 6,000㎡, the supermarket brings easy access of over 20,000 groceries to local shoppers.
Tailored to meet locals’ daily shopping needs, this full-service supermarket distinguishes itself with our global source network, modern production center, meals solutions, and the strengths in private label products development.
The location offers a wide selection of quality products, local, regional and international, including fresh and live seafood directly from Weihai fishermen, wines from vineyards and wineries, produce, local meat, groceries and more from farmlands. With “from farm to store” program, 80% of products available at store are sourced directly from local farmers and growers.
SPAR Shandong runs its own production center in Laiwu. Meals, deli and other food solutions available at store are processed, prepared and distributed from the PC. Food safety and consistent quality is 100% guaranteed.
Benefited from the food traceability system and innovative IT tools, shoppers are allowed to obtain food information about origin, production, procurement, product story and quarantine results, and trace movements a step backward and a step forward at any point in the supply chain.
Integrating online and offline experience is also a highlight. SPAR Shandong team has successfully launched its online channels, Wechat mini program and Eleme platform, to prompt shoppers to place orders through mobile devices. Online orders will be delivered within 30 minutes. To celebrate new opening, the store also offers special discounts for those who place orders online.
Now let’s take a look at this amazing new SPAR supermarket!
