We think causes that matter to the local community are important and offer our support wherever we can. Throughout the year our managed houses play host to a varied programme of community-based events, such as the Northern & Southern Quiz Leagues and The Pool & Darts League. In addition, our Head Office staff regularly support both local and UK-wide charity campaigns.

‘Baby Spar’ opens at The Crosby Pub to serve the local community

During this difficult time, we at SPAR recognise the important role we’re playing to provide a lifeline for our local Island communities with our convenience stores and forecourts.

To serve the local community of Crosby, and give residents of Glen Vine an alternative choice to our Union Mills store, on Friday 3rd April, we’re opened a ‘pop-up’ store within The Crosby pub; which has been temporarily closed during the Coronavirus lockdown.

We’re calling our brand new concept ‘Baby Spar’, but be assured that it will stock a comprehensive convenience range for essential shopping needs between the hours of 08:00 and 19:00 seven days a week.  The Baby Spar will also be offering a collection and delivery service to the immediate surrounding area.

We very much appreciate our retail teams continuing to keep our communities stocked and supplied with groceries - and ask our customers to play their part in protecting them by following Isle of Man Government’s health guidelines for responsible shopping:

•   maintain social distancing - we’ll be controlling customer numbers to help

•   thoroughly wash hands before visiting stores and handling goods

•   please make all payments, where possible, by card to avoid cash handling


Together we’ll get through this.

Stay safe,

Vic van den Heever

Managing Director
