Some stores that are part of petrol stations will be open until midnight, with some staying open 24 hours.

Can I get my shopping delivered from Spar today?

Spar offers a delivery service – but it's best to check with your local store if this is running as usual today.

You'll usually have to contact your local Spar directly to set up a delivery slot – but these are typically prioritised for the vulnerable and elderly.

Not all stores offer this service though as each are independently run, so check with your local branch to see if delivery is available to you.

You can also get Spar products delivered via Deliveroo.

The charge for this will depend on how far away you live from a store, but you can get free delivery if you spend at least £15.

Then it will usually take around 20 minutes to reach you.
