    Spar means to ‘save’ in German – with this you are nicht Sparen. That for uns ist hilarious. Hilarious like a delayed bus due to a unscheduled malfunction.

      The name was originally DE SPAR, an acronym of the Dutch phrase Door Eendrachtig Samenwerken Profiteren Allen Regelmatig[note 1] (English: through united co-operation everyone regularly profits)

    Yes
    If you shop in a big chain type store you’re typically going to get things at a better price than what you will in most corner shops….

    AND EVEN BETTER
    If you look for what are called “OFFERS” (that’s what that’s called when they write “WOW!” above a price, that’s usually called an offer), you’ll probably find that price is lower (yes, lower) than the price you’ll see in most other supermarkets. The concept is called invoice pricing (as loss leading is banned in Ireland).
