SPAR and their policy for reward deals for the elderly

I received information recently that the SPAR outlet in Darling is planning to discontinue reward deals for the elderly. I have been informed that “SPAR will end the reward card system for the elderly at the end of August and the cash payouts at the end of September”.

I am aware that SPAR outlets are run by Franchisees which can be groups or individuals. Nevertheless I emailed SPAR headquarters and then spoke to a representative of SPAR marketing to find out what their policy is on discounts for the elderly. The SPAR spokesperson phoned me back after receiving my email so we are clear about which direction the contact/reply came from and to. I was informed that each individual SPAR sets their own policy for any special deals for the elderly.

I have listed the Cape West Coast (where we live) SPAR outlets that I am aware of.

If you want to be sure about the status of your local SPAR regarding the reward card system for the elderly terminating at the end of August and the cash payouts at the end of September, phone them and ask if their store is applying the same termination of the special deals.
