We create and manage local campaigns that include leafleting, radio and newspaper advertising, primarily to support our three weekly promotions we also provide all associated in store point of sale material for all our stores.


We also work with suppliers to create additional activity, competitions and to source one off promotions to create a point of difference for our SPAR stores.

Some examples are shown below:

'Win a holiday with Budweiser' Prize Draw Competition Winner!

And the winner is!

Trowbridge woman Sam Winner was the winner of a £1,500 holiday prize when her aptly named entry form was the first one drawn in a competition staged in hundreds of SPAR convenience stores throughout the south west.

Sam, of Marden Walk, won the holiday after entering the competition, run by Budweiser during this summer’s World Cup, at her local SPAR store at the BP Ivy Garage in West Ashton Road, Trowbridge. Budweiser were one of the official sponsors of the tournament.

Thousands of SPAR customers in the south west entered the competition by posting their address details in prize draw boxes in stores to win a holiday in the country that won the tournament. As Spain won, Sam will be looking forward to holidaying on one of the Costas.

“I’m thrilled to have won,” said Sam. “I don’t know exactly where I am going, but am looking forward to going somewhere hot.”

Sam is pictured here receiving her prize with Nick Vivian (left), head of marketing for Appleby Westward, SPAR’s regional distribution company, and Ian Robertston, manager of the Trowbridge SPAR store.
