> 13,000 stores worldwide

Spar is the world's largest chain of merchants with more than 13,000 stores in 48 countries. In close cooperation with Spar International, the Dagrofa Group is behind the opening of the brand new flagship store in Teglholmen (Sydhavn) – a newer district in Copenhagen. It is a well-known merchant from Jutland, Ronnie Borregaard, with Copenhagen experience and strong results behind him, who is leading the new Spar store. He has also been preparing and developing the concepts in the store since June 1st.

"Spar Natural"

As the first Spar in Denmark, the new store launched the international concept, Spar Natural, which brings together organic, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free products in one place. The 698 m2 new store also offers customers a wide convenience assortment with sandwiches, salads and light dishes as well as juice presser, nuts and a large selection of fruits and vegetables. In addition to this, the prices are always updated as they are displayed digitally on electronic shelf labels.

Local and digital

"Together with Spar, I have worked on creating a new shopping experience in Copenhagen, where the competition is tough, and you must be able to offer something special. We're providing the district a strong local grocery store, where you can experience new specialty products from smaller suppliers. At the same time, we ensure correct prices on the shelves by using electronic shelf labels, so we avoid unnecessary time on price errors and then we can be there for our customers instead", says Ronnie Borregaard, merchant at Spar Teglholmen.
