Spar Parkfoot, West Malling, Kent

Earlier this year David Charman’s Kent-based Spar store underwent a £750,000 renovation, which saw the shop extended from 1,500sq ft to 2,800 sq ft and fitted with the recently unveiled, new-look Spar fascia and imagery.

The 24-hour BP forecourt in West Malling offers shoppers everything they could want from a modern convenience store including a wide range of chilled foods, extensive produce section, groceries, impulse-buy items and an off licence.

The store also boasts a locally-supplied delicatessen, in-store butchery, a made-to-order sandwich counter and a great organic and vegetarian selection.

The store witnessed a 45% year-on-year increase in sales in the first four weeks following the refit.
