Welcome to SPAR

SPAR is one of Ireland’s largest retail food store chains with over 400 high quality, conveniently located outlets across urban, rural and forecourt settings. Celebrating 60 years of serving Irish communities in 2023, SPAR retailers have been the foundation stone of the leading convenience brand for six decades through serving the different types of consumer needs, from food to enjoy for breakfast or lunch, regular top up shopping across a broad range of great value essentials and fantastic fresh products or convenient forecourt offering.


One of the most important decisions an independent convenience retailer will ever make is the decision to become affiliated to a symbol group. And the reasons range from concerns about protecting their businesses from competition to wanting guidance from an established name in the retail industry on how to ensure their business reaches its full potential.
Whatever the reason, SPAR is an obvious destination for any independent wishing to grow their business, and can offer independent retailers a bright, secure and prosperous future. We strive to always be at the cutting edge of innovation in products and services, through an evolving store development programme and by investing in store-owners with real retailing expertise – people like you. If you become a SPAR member you will be provided with all the tools and support you need to keep your business growing.
You will benefit from an extensive and highly successful marketing programme that includes a proven promotional programme of Real Deals linked to printed media, TV, Radio and Digital advertising. You will also have access to the most comprehensive own-brand range in the convenience sector and one that is constantly evolving to match modern customer tastes and requirements.
