Focus on fresh products
Fresh products are definitely the flagship of the new Spar store in Spa. Independent entrepreneur Christophe Burnet has a large catering counter for which his cousin, a graduate of an Italian cooking school, prepares the dishes. It is no surprise then that customers can find a wide range of preparations from the Italian boot. "We offer not only Italian (80 % of the counter) but also local dishes (the remaining 20 %). We also focus on fruit and vegetables and the bakery section, synonymous with freshness and quality," Christophe Burnet explains. The co-workers bake several kinds of quality bread, pastries and rolls. The department is very clear so that customers can immediately find what they are looking for.
The brand-new Spar is ideally located: in the centre of the spa town at 200 metres from the casino. The local supermarket is located along avenue Reine Astrid 71 and is easily accessible on foot, by bicycle or by car, not just for local residents, but for tourists as well. It has a large car park with 53 places for its customers. This central location also enables Christophe Burnet to realise synergies with local town activities such as the Tuesday market or the Sunday flea market.
The customer comes first
Another great asset of the new Spar in Spa is the friendly welcome. Christophe Burnet has much professional experience at Spa and knows the habits of the customers in the region well. Before he took over the Spar store in Spa, he managed the Spar of Sprimont for several years. Like him, his entire team comes from the area to serve the local customers as well as they can. On the digital screens in the store, customers can find inspiration in recipes or product information. If they have questions, the Spar co-workers of Spa will gladly give them all the useful information they need.
