Want to become a retailer?

  • Do you have hands-on retail experience?
  • Do you have an existing store that you would like to convert to a SPAR outlet?
  • Do you have retail premises that could be converted to supermarket use?
  • Do you have land in a prime location that you would like to develop into a SPAR supermarket?
  • Do you have access to funding to develop a SPAR supermarket?

Should you wish to apply to become a Sub-Licencee of SPAR Zimbabwe, please write to us, giving the physical address of the premises from which you wish to operate and any other information you feel will enhance your application.  We will respond within 20 working days.  Please send your written letter to debs.wells@spar.co.zw

To be a SPAR Sub-Licencee you require a store, either owned or leased, with minimum selling / trading areas of between 205 m2 (SPAR Express) to 650 m2 + (SPAR) and 1800 m2 + (SuperSPAR) . This area does not include areas to be used for storage, staff amenities, loading areas, offices, bakery and butchery preparation area. (Please note the above areas may change from time to time without notice.)

Suitable access to the rear storage areas of the supermarket is essential as we do not allow stores to receive deliveries of merchandise through the front doors of the store, and our projects division will visit the proposed store to determine the accessibility and suitability of the loading area.

SPAR does not finance the setting up of the store, neither when upgrading an existing store nor developing a new one.

SPAR will require information on what finances you have at your disposal for setting up the proposed new store and will require information on the projection of the store.  Information relating to the qualifications and retail experience of the applicant will also be requested.  

If identified as being a suitable Sub-Licencee, your application will be forwarded to the Directors of SPAR Zimbabwe for approval.
