Spar Scotland lorry

CJ Lang & Son, the Spar wholesaler and convenience store operator, is to make its biggest investment in its company-owned store estate.

The investment – the largest by the board of CJ Lang – will cover multiple projects, including new energy-saving refrigeration, which will also improve its customer offer across chilled foods and produce.

In addition, the group is also planning store refits focusing on the store format. The investment will go into large and small-scale development work where they will modernise the layout, look and feel of Spar Scotland stores.

Colin McLean, Chief Executive of CJ Lang & Son, said: “Our Spar stores are positioned in the heart of communities and now is the time to carry out the next phase of our store improvement strategy.

“In recent years we have successfully rolled out Costa Coffee, our ‘CJ’s’ food-to-go offer, and improved our fleet of vehicles that travel millions of miles a year across the country… This investment demonstrates our confidence in the future direction of the business.”
