SPAR Scotland, the leading independent convenience store group and the SPAR wholesaler in Scotland, holds its second virtual tradeshow on 23 September 2021.


The theme of the event is ‘One Family, One Vision’ and is set to be bigger and better than last year. 


This year’s virtual trade show will see SPAR Scotland showcasing various key business initiatives, products and services in order to demonstrate its symbol leadership around the country. 


As well as providing a market-leading delivered wholesale service to over 200 independent retail stores, SPAR Scotland offers a great opportunity to a huge number of leading suppliers, both local and national, to work together in driving product distribution, to an additional 107 SPAR Scotland company owned stores.


SPAR Scotland has also seen more independent retailers join SPAR as their chosen partner over the last twelve months.  Retailer recruitment has been gathering pace as convenience stores across the region join the SPAR fascia.


Colin McLean, CEO of SPAR Scotland, said: “We have a robust recruitment plan which has enabled us to recruit a significant number of additional stores already in the first 6 months of this financial year.  Independent retailers are attracted by the SPAR brand and our market-leading position because we have demonstrated how we have the right solution to meet the challenges they have faced in the convenience market over the past two years.


“We are helping independent retailers improve profitability through better prices and promotions, better delivery and distribution, better service and all with our unique SPAR brand to all corners of Scotland.


“SPAR is the leading symbol group across the UK for independent retailers.  There will be no better place to showcase our results and what we have available than at our virtual tradeshow which takes place on 23 September.


“Here people will be able to see first-hand just how well we can compete, and the benefits SPAR Scotland can bring to their business,” he added.


During the event SPAR Scotland will update suppliers, retailers and colleagues on its transformation journey and the momentum that is gathering pace within the business. 


There will be suppliers exhibiting, presentations from SPAR Scotland and key supplier partners, live Q&A sessions and promotional deals on the day for retailers.


SPAR Scotland has a proven track record in delivering NPD with suppliers, who will also have an opportunity to increase the distribution and volumes of key products with a new platform for securing orders developed for this year’s event.


In addition, former Royal Marine Commando Andy Grant will share his inspirational story of overcoming loss and adversity at the event.


SPAR Scotland tradeshow takes place on Thursday 23rd September 2021. For further information, or to book a place to take part, please contact the SPAR Scotland Expo team on spar.expo@xsem.co.uk
