Spar starts with an online shop in Hungary
Supermarket chain Spar wants to start an online store in Hungary this year. Currently, home delivery of online groceries is already possible in some cities in Austria and Slovenia and soon, consumers from Hungary will be able to order their groceries online.
According to Ecommerce News, Spar came relatively late to the game. Spar format Interspar has been delivering groceries to households in Vienna and Salzburg (both Austria) for about two years now.
Last year, the online shop of Spar registered a growth of over 50%, with the online shop accounting for about 1% of Interspar’s total sales.
The CEO clarified that the supermarket chain currently has no plans to roll out online delivery to other cities in Austria. The Dutch multinational group just doesn’t want to expand too fast in the online retail industry.
