Spar Scotland are continuing their growth trend, welcoming the latest addition of independent retailer Jignesh Chauhan and his store in Airdrie.
Having been with Day Today for more than four years, Chauhan was interested in discovering more after hearing positive feedback from family with SPAR stores south of the border. After visiting Spar Scotland stores and experiencing them first-hand, Chauhan committed to becoming part of the SPAR Scotland family, deciding it was the place to be.
Mike Leonard, sales director for Spar Scotland, said: “We’re delighted Jignesh has made the decision to join our increasing ranks of independent retailers. The feedback from other SPAR retailers is proof just how important word of mouth is as we continue to attract new business into Spar Scotland.
“With our expert team on hand to support, we look forward to celebrating the success of the new store with Jignesh.”
The 695sq ft store at 19-21 Stirling Street in Airdrie, North Lanarkshire, has undergone a substantial conversion, dramatically improving not only its range but also appearance. Customers can now look forward to picking up food-to-go options in-store such as Smoking Bean Coffee, Tango Ice Blast, F’real frozen milkshakes, Fwip ice cream, Stuart’s bakery products and Rollover hot dogs amongst its comprehensive offering.
Chauhan said: “The customers absolutely love what we have done with the shop and are delighted with how professional it looks, the increased range and the competitive prices.
“I personally cannot believe the support and guidance you get from Spar Scotland, with the regular visits, contact and so much help and advice. Business development wise they really know what they are doing.
“I really do feel like part of the Spar family already and I cannot wait to grow my own portfolio of stores with Spar Scotland!”
