In 1991 a SPAR Supermarket opened its doors in Ljubljana for the first time to offer Slovenian consumers a very new shopping experience: The combination of international brand articles, many regional Slovenian products and cost-effective SPAR private label goods was exactly what Slovenian consumers wanted. SPAR Slovenia continued to expand in the subsequent years and now has over 130 stores throughout the country, 21 of which are operated by independent retailers. That easily makes the company the second biggest retailer, and also one of the largest employers. The various stores are served by six different types of store formats, and customers have access to an individual range of products. They can also choose from country-specific products. SPAR Slovenia supplies a total of 670 regional producers. Slovenia has also had an online food retail shop since 2018. SPAR Slovenia’s registered office and logisticscentre, plus SPAR's own bakery can be found in Ljubljana.
An appropriate regional solution for each store. SPAR Slovenia has six different store types for food retail, and two restaurant operations.
