SPAR Russia managing director Sergey Loktev said: “Our new SPAR Partner in Astrakhan is determined to expand the SPAR network.

With a sales area of 290m² and more than 3,500 stockkeeping units (SKUs), the new store also features a café, where customers can have breakfast, lunch or dinner.

SPAR Russia opened its first store in the country after obtaining the licence to operate the brand by SPAR International.
