Ensuring a sustainable and prosperous convenience industry in Scotland

SPAR Retailers from across Scotland Join SGF

The Scottish Grocers’ Federation (SGF) are delighted to welcome all SPAR retailers in Scotland into membership.

SPAR, one of the leading local shopping groups, has over 300 stores in Scotland.

John Drummond, Chief Executive of SGF said,

“We are delighted to welcome all SPAR stores in Scotland into membership.
This decision will build and strengthen the relationship SGF already enjoys with SPAR and ensure they are part of a unified retail voice that shapes the retail agenda.”

Claire Smith, SPAR Scottish Guild Chairman, said;

“Adding the weight of 330 SPAR Scotland stores to the SGF will help both organisations influence policy-makers at a time when it is essential to alleviate the significant impact of red tape on a Scottish Convenience sector which is working hard to trade through troubled economic times. The SGF works tirelessly to support our sector and, in turn, it deserves our support”.
