Spar Croatia d.o.o., supermarket chain owned by SPAR Osterreichische Warenhandels AG, opened on the 15th of March its new INTERSPAR hypermarket in Rijeka’s area of Rujevica.

The new store represents an investment equal to 23 million EUR and employs 120 people.

INTERSPAR Rujevica features a new interior design concept that enhances the shopping experience. The complex was built using natural materials, according to the latest energy efficiency standards.

Currently, the chain operates a total of 84 SPAR supermarkets and 20 INTERSPAR hypermarkets across the country, employing more than 4,346 people.

In April 2017, Spar concluded the takeover of 62 Billa stores in Croatia as part of its aim to pursue further development on the Croatian market.
