Description About Spar Logo Wallpaper
Spar (styled SPAR), trades from approximately 12500 stores in 34 countries worldwide and is the world’s largest independent voluntary retail trading chain. Spar was founded in the Netherlands in 1932 by retailer Adriaan Van Well and now, through its affiliate organisations, operates through most European countries, parts of Africa, Asia and Australia. It has its headquarters in Amsterdam.
The name was originally DE SPAR, an acronym of the Dutch phrase Door Eendrachtig Samenwerken Profiteren Allen Regelmatig (literally: “through united co-operation everyone regularly profits”). Spaar or spar means “save (money)” in Afrikaans, Dutch, Danish, German,Swedish and Norwegian. “De Spar” is Dutch for “The Fir”, hence Spar’s logo. As the organisation expanded across Europe, the name was abbreviated by dropping “DE”, but the underlying meaning remains. In Italy, the name is still Despar, though in keeping with the international branding, the “SPAR” section of the logo is highlighted, and the larger stores are still called Eurospar and Interspar. In Japan the store operates under the name Hotspar, although the store logo colouring remains unchanged.
