The adverts will reach 1,588,080 adults on average 3.8 times across Scotland.

Commenting on this latest investment into SPAR Scotland’s advertising is Colin McLean, CEO at CJ Lang and Son Ltd: “SPAR is the leading convenience retail brand in Scotland. We want to ensure that our marketing has real stand out and is identifiable with shoppers.

“Our aim is to continue driving our strategy for growth and now is the right time to put SPAR back on mainstream TV. Through the investment we have made into retail pricing, SPAR stores are now able to offer shoppers even more value on these leading brands,” he said.

The convenience store group is looking to attract new customers to SPAR stores with great prices in addition to many other fantastic products available at everyday great prices.

SPAR Scotland has strengthened its brand collateral to increase shopper engagement. Products advertised on TV will be given strong visibility in prominent locations across all SPAR stores in Scotland complementing the increased level of value-lead promotions available in stores.

The TV adverts have been created with a view to improve consumer perception of SPAR. By focusing on these six headline products, our SPAR stores are offering shoppers credible options.”
