12 September 2014

The Spar South Africa group is partnering the Webcor group, which has a large presence in the South African market, to open its first store in Cabinda, northern Angola, the South African press reported.

The supermarket, which will have an area of 2,700 square metres, will offer the usual supermarket services such as a bakery, butcher and takeaway counters, as well as household appliances and café/restaurant.

The payment system has also been ordered from South African company Arch Retail Systems, which signed an agreement to provide IT solutions for Spar South Africa’s ambitious growth process in Angola.

The “Arch In-store” solution is already operating in the Kamba Market in Viana, Luanda, and Kamba is the brand name of a small chain of supermarkets operated by the Webcor group. (macauhub/AO)
