Spar International's UK arm has announced a five-year contract with Bourne Leisure Group, the UK owner of Haven Holiday Parks, Butlins and Warner Hotels.

The GBP150m contract will see 42 Spar stores at all 36 Haven Holiday Parks across England, Scotland and Wales and the three Butlins Family Entertainment Resorts in Bognor Regis, Skegness and Minehead.

Five Spar retail distribution companies will service the stores: CJ Lang & Son, James Hall & Co, AF Blakemore & Son, Capper & Co and Appleby Westward Group, who will provide the delivery of ambient/grocery, chilled, frozen, meat, fresh produce, alcohol and tobacco products.

Mark Harper, operations director at Bourne Leisure, said: "We are delighted to be entering into a partnership with Spar, a retailer that shares our values of providing the highest standards of customer service and care.

"Furthermore, the Spar branding in our stores will help reinforce the retail proposition we are offering," he concluded.

Richard Bennett, Spar retail director, said the deal was excellent news for the company's development.

"This five-year contract with Bourne Leisure Group is allowing us to expand our portfolio of Spar convenience stores across the country. The combination of these two strong brands will result in a first-rate convenience store, providing exactly what Butlins and Haven visitors need, where they need it.

"We are very much looking forward to working with the group and bringing all the benefits of the Spar brand to these sites," he said.
