Ger Harte, owner SPAR Clonakilty has been appointed as the new Chairman for the National Council of SPAR Retailers (NCSR) for 2017.

The NCSR is made up of 12 SPAR retailers representing almost 400 stores from around the country from a mixture of urban and rural settings who play a key role in the success and development of the SPAR brand in Ireland. The members serve for two years and as part of their role, council members help develop SPAR Ireland’s overall strategy and policies by regularly meeting with management of BWG Foods, owners and operators of the SPAR and SPAR Express brands in Ireland.

According to Ger, “I am delighted to be taking on the role of Chairman of the NCSR. Our term in office is ensuring all SPAR and SPAR Express retailers’ voices are heard and to make sure their feedback and insights are communicated to BWG management to drive the overall SPAR brand throughout the year. Together we can make SPAR and SPAR Express stronger than ever.”

Ger employs 43 staff from the locality and his 9,000 sq ft SPAR Clonakilty store is currently undergoing a €250k refit, which will create up to 10 new jobs. The store has a full off-licence, a large sit down area, a bespoke bakery offering, Apache Pizzeria, Subway and a very strong deli and full supermarket offering.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my local customers for their continued support,” said Ger.

Harte’s SPAR is open Monday to Sunday 7.30am to 10pm.
