Recent acquisitions and the growth of its private-label range has boosted full-year profits at US regional retailer Spartan Stores.

The company yesterday (13 May) booked a 13.1% increase in net earnings to US$38.8m for the 12 months to 28 March.

Operating earnings rose by 18% to US$72.7m, with Spartan thanking “ higher sales volumes, better operating leverage and acquisition synergies”.

Net sales were up 4% to US$2.6bn due to the Felpausch and VG’s acquisitions and an increase in comparable-store sales of 2.7%.

“This past fiscal year has been another success for Spartan Stores,” said Spartan CEO Dennis Eidson.
