    I visit this Spar once a week to buy Spar milk and bread (and the occasional chocolate when my hubby isnt with me - which gets devoured before I get home!!). For the past couple of weeks they havent had Spar milk, which has been very frustrating because it means I have to go up to Steve's Spar where I always find more things to buy!! This morning I asked the manager/owner why they dont order sufficient milk each week. He told me there was a possibility he would be cancelling his contract with Spar because they owe him a considerable amount of money, due to overcharging him, and Spar keep saying "they are looking into it", although he has given them all the relevant documentation. This manager doesnt know me from a bar of soap and I dont believe he would have told me all the information unless it was true. Come on Spar, sort things out!! Companies are battling everywhere for business. We like the Spar products and would hate to see this store close because someone isnt treating the problem as a priority.

    With literally dozens of recent 'shopping experiences' under my belt at this shop over the past several weeks, I am exceptionally well qualified to review the establishment. At the very heart of a good shopping experience (hunting not gathering !), is the ability to park quickly and easily, and get into (and out of) the shop with minimal ado - this part of the experience is excellent, with 'off street' parallel parking immediately off 14th Avenue. More parking (but slightly more 'shleppy') is to be found in their own little lot. Regular security and 'car guards' are around, but I'm not sure how effective they would be in a true test ? The shop is always busy, and seems well staffed, and stocked, with shelves being replenished almost constantly. Checkouts are usually available immediately and I appreciate the supervisors sharp attention to the 'queue management' aspect, aside from a few 'peak moments' where one may have to wait for a person or two. Even during the recent MTN strike along the road, the shop coped pretty well in managing the hordes of red T - shirted unionists who participated in the 'event' . Perhaps my only disappointment has been the deli, and whilst looking 'OK' the sandwich I selected on one occasion was 'not very lekker' ! - So use the deli with some circumspection. Otherwise a good all round KwikSpar !
