SPAR Keith has lots to shout about! The store was recently refurbished so that customers old and new can enjoy more variety and choice in the chilled, fresh and dairy areas.

Local well known Bakery, Ritchies is supplying the store with a new range of cakes and pastries, fresh for you every day, and there are lots of special opening offers in store.

The store celebrated its official launch by giving away a taste of SPAR for free. The first 100 customers through the checkout received SPAR brand product goodie bags.

Keith Cancer Link were presented with a £200 cheque at the store. The money was collected through the SPAR Carrier bag initiative.The initiative, which has seen a staggering £180,000 being raised for local charities since its launch in 2008, donates the 2p charge from every ‘single use’ carrier bag sold.

Every 2p is collected and donated to a locally nominated charity, benefitting not only the local area in which SPAR serves, but also positively impacting on the environment. Such is the case that SPAR has reduced its carrier bag usage by over 40% since the launch of the scheme.
