Spar trials H&B

SPAR Holland and Barrett[4]HEALTH foods, vitamins and protein powders could be heading into the convenience channel if a new trial by Spar leads to a wider roll-out.

The symbol store operator is teaming up with health retailer Holland & Barrett to offer a range of skincare, vitamin, mineral and food supplements.

The partnership is currently in a trial phase in three stores in Northern Ireland, with plans to now extend the trial to more 10 more Northern Irish Spar stores.

Holland & Barrett products are available as part of a three bay in-store display and Holland & Barrett promotions are also available.

Debbie Robinson, Spar UK managing director, said: “Partnerships with new businesses are a key part of our Growing Together strategy,

“Holland & Barrett is a great brand and one of the UK’s largest retailers, making it a great fit for Spar. Our initial three store trial has been a great success.”
