Key Market Issues
The South African economy witnessed stable growth of 4.5% during 2002-2008, but has been adversely impacted by the global financial crisis. The reserve bank of South Africa has revised the country's GDP growth estimates for 2013 to 2.6%, from an earlier estimate of 2.9%, which suggests that the economic conditions could deteriorate further.
Factors such as labour unrest, and a lack of job creation, are both contributing to weak consumer demand in the country.
The retailer plans to add 26 new SPAR stores in the country during 2013.
SPAR plans to open a new distribution centre at Gauteng which is expected to get operational by 2016
