The Croatian branch of convenience retailer SPAR has expanded its store network with the opening of an INTERSPAR Hypermarket store.

Located in Velika Gorica, Zagreb County, the 3,000m² store features an ‘extensive’ fresh food department offering meat, fruits and vegetables, fish, bakery products and non-food products.

The store houses more than 25,000 food and non-food products and has created 95 jobs.

Built in line with SPAR Austria Group’s ‘format of the future’ concept, the store features energy-saving technologies such as underfloor heating, the use of residual heat and energy-saving cooling and lighting technologies.

Its construction required a total investment of €19.9m ($20.3m).

SPAR Croatia CEO Helmut Fenzl said: “I am extremely proud that a flagship store for all of the future SPAR Austria Group’s INTERSPAR Hypermarkets was developed here in Croatia.”

SPAR is offering a wide range of local and regional products to support local producers at the new hypermarket.

The company cooperates with more than 40 small-scale agricultural producers in Croatia and donated €2,650 to Velika Gorica’s voluntary fire brigade on the store’s opening day.

The store opening comes after SPAR Croatia opened a 1,300m² supermarket in Kaštel Sucurc in southern Croatia, as well as an outlet in Donja Stubica.

The Donja Stubica store offers a wide range of food and non-food products with a focus on locally sourced products, including meat, pasta, honey and fresh local fruit and vegetables.

SPAR’s store in Kaštel Sucurc features a butchery, a fresh fish area and a large selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as non-food products.
