SPAR Burntwood

Blakemore Retail has opened a brand new SPAR convenience store in Burntwood, Staffordshire.

Situated on Cannock Road, the 3,000 sq ft store opened its doors on Friday 2nd August on the site of a former Co-Op.

Featuring a refreshed Subway department, hot food to go and freshly made baguettes from the Daily Deli range, the store has been updated to provide a wide range of food-to-go options to satisfy local shopping missions.

The Burntwood store is the second across the Blakemore Retail estate to include Subway’s new ‘Fresh Forward’ format, featuring digital menu boards and a sleeker design, streamlining the ordering process for customers.

The store has been developed to include a ‘Tonight’s Tea’ range, providing simple and delicious ‘cook from scratch’ options, along with a fresh self-serve Costa Coffee machine, off-licence services and everyday essentials such as bread, milk, fresh fruit and vegetables.

The SPAR also offers CollectPlus, PayPoint and National Lottery services as well as a free-to-use cash machine.

Area Manager Mark Bostock commented: “The new Burntwood store is a fantastic addition to the Blakemore Retail estate. The new ‘Fresh Forward’ concept from Subway adds a bright and refreshing touch.

“Burntwood SPAR has an extensive selection of fresh foods and grocery items, so it will be a real destination for the local community.

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

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

Over the launch weekend, customers were treated to free food samples, goodie bags and charity giveaways, as well as face-painting and colouring competitions for children.

The new SPAR will be open Monday to Saturday 6am-11pm and Sunday 7am-11pm.
