Spar to open 50 new stores with creation of 1,000 jobs

The BWG group, the owners of SPAR, are to invest €100m in store development over the next five years. The investment will see 50 new stores open around the country between now and 2016 with the creation of approximately 1,000 jobs.

The announcement was made at a SPAR retailer convention in Killarney this morning. It follows the recent investment by BWG South Africa, which saw it take an 80% holding in the group.
