Spar UK and Holland & Barrett have signed a deal that will see Spar stores across Northern Ireland offer a range of skincare, vitamin, mineral and food supplements, with three stores in the North already trialling the extended range.
When contacted, BWG told Checkout that it has no plans to introduce the health food retailer's products into Spar stores in the Republic of Ireland.
Debbie Robinson, Spar UK Managing Director, said: “We are very supportive of this exciting new initiative, which is an extension of our national strategy to work with new partners. Health and wellbeing is on trend, and as the UK's leading symbol convenience group, we are constantly looking at ways to innovate and meet the needs of our consumers.
"This partnership with Holland & Barrett fits very well with our brand, driving more health conscious consumers into our stores."
Robinson went on to say that so far, the initial three-store trial has been a success, and that Spar plans to extend it to a further 10 stores across Northern Ireland.
