SPAR Maerdy relaunch

Blakemore Retail has relocated its Maerdy SPAR store in South Wales to a brand new site on Maerdy Road.

The 2,152 sq ft store, which is a brand new build, opened its doors on Friday 11th October on the site of a former hotel. 

The new SPAR now features a Daily Deli department, serving up fresh hot and cold food to go and a Post Office Local.

The store has also been developed to include an increased chilled food offer and slush machine, along with off-licence services and everyday essentials such as bread, milk, fresh fruit and vegetables.

The SPAR offers CollectPlus, PayPoint and National Lottery services as well as a free cash machine. A defibrillator has been fitted at the entrance to the store.

With the addition of a new food-to-go department, Blakemore Retail has created five new jobs in the area, bringing the store’s total number of staff to 19.

Blakemore Retail Area Manager Gail Crowley commented: “The new Maerdy store has been purpose built using the latest innovation and design to ensure the best possible service for customers.

“The inclusion of a Daily Deli department along with post office services will make the Maerdy store a real destination for the local community.

“We are really excited to be trading in Maerdy and would like to welcome all customers back to experience their new SPAR store!”

The new store has been fitted with energy-saving LED lighting throughout as well as chilled cabinets designed to conserve energy.

The SPAR was officially opened on Friday 11th October by volunteers of Maerdy Paddling Pool, which the store had been raising funds for.

The store celebrated by hosting a fun day over the weekend, with a free grand prize draw, face painting and free SPAR goodie bags for the first 100 customers.

The new SPAR will be open from 7am to 11pm every day.
