A brand new Spar store officially opened its doors on 25 February in South Queensferry, near Edinburgh.
The 1,000 sq. ft. shop was previously a Premier but underwent a refurbishment, offering customers a range of licensed products, lotto, Payzone, Rollover hot dogs, Tango ice blast, coffee, F’real and Porrelli ice cream.
Local customers were able to enjoy free samples of these products on opening day, as well as having the chance to enter a prize draw, with prizes including Spar vouchers and a 24” smart TV.
Akhtar owns the store, and commented: “I am delighted to have joined the successful Spar family in Scotland. I am so happy with the support I have received since moving to Spar. My business is thriving in a very competitive market and sales continue to grow every week. I am very excited for the future.”
Regional sales manager for Spar Scotland, Derek Murray, added: “Congratulations to Akhtar and all the team at South Queensferry. We are delighted to be able to support them with the grand opening. The variety of services the store offers will deliver real benefits for its residents.”
