The Netherlands-based Spar, one of Europe’s largest retail chains, is finally coming to Serbia.
According to the article in the Belgrade daily Alo, final negotiations between the top management of the Serbian supermarket chain Aman and the Dutch giant are underway and a deal under which Spar will acquire Aman is due to be signed immediately after the Christmas holidays.
The article says that Spar had been trying to break into the Serbian market for a decade and that, prior to the talks with Aman, its negotiations with Mercator S – which owns the Idea and Roda retail chains – had fallen through last year.
