What you bargained for?

You may well find more than you bargained for when you visit your local SPAR store:

There For You

We're always open when you need us, plus many SPAR stores offer vital local services including Post Office, banking services, top-ups, lottery and bill paying facilities - why?

Because the majority of our stores are owned, managed and run by people who live in the community they serve!

SPAR retailers feel a genuine responsibility to provide for their community, because they are part of the community.

Example store - SPAR Pelynt

SPAR Pelynt: Services include Post Office, Cash machine & Lottery.  Opening Hours: Monday - Saturday (7:30am to 9pm) & Sunday (9am to 6pm)

Other Services offered in the majority of stores:


With shops throughout the South West and the Isle of Wight, SPAR are at the heart of South West communities and "Always There for You".

At SPAR we aim to provide you, the customer, with all the services that are important to your local community.

SPAR is also involved in a number of community initiatives and is developing a framework to become even more closely involved in supporting the things that matter to you. All our stores aim to play an active role in local life and the rural community. Visit our website often to keep up to date with how SPAR is helping communities.

Athletics, Sprints & Sports Days

Getting kids active and enjoying sport is important to SPAR. SPAR supports sports at all levels: On the international and local stage. From school sports days to elite events.

SPAR, principal sponsor of the European Athletics Association

Since 1996, SPAR has been the principal sponsor of the European Athletics Association. This means that SPAR is seen across the world on competitor's bibs, at the start line and on perimeter boards at many different events.

Millions of viewers witness our commitment to supporting top sporting events and athletes. Our current sponsorship includes sponsorship of the European Athletics Championships, European Athletics Indoor Championships, SPAR European Cup, SPAR European Cross Country Championships and the European Athletics Indoor Cup.

"As a principal sponsor of our sport, we thank SPAR for their on-going contribution towards achieving great European athletics events and enabling continued strong competition for our athletes." Hansjörg Wirz, President of the European Athletics Association.


SPAR has selected the NSPCC and its sister organisation, Children 1st, as its nominated charity. This sponsorship is central to what SPAR is all about: making a difference!

NSPCC Helpline - Save this number: 0808 800 5000.  You never know when a child will need you

The NSPCC and CHILDREN 1ST share a vision of a society where all children are loved, valued and able to fulfil their potential. Through our fundraising, SPAR helps to realise this vision.
