Spar International refrains from any comment on its plans in Lithuania, just as the lawyers who filed the brand applications with the State Patent Bureau on its behalf.

Spar International operates a chain of 13,100 Spar, Spar Express, Eurospar and Interspar stores in 48 countries and services 13.5 million customers every day.

Spar International posted 35.8 billion euros in revenue last year, up 5.4 percent from 2017, including 5.8 billion euros (up 15.8 percent) in Central and Eastern Europe alone.

Spar used to operate in Lithuania but sold off its stores in Lithuania to the Iki and Norfa chain after its operator Baltic Food Holding went bankrupt in 2002.

The Maxima, Ik, Rimi and Norfa retail chains operate in Lithuania, and the German discounter Lidl entered the Lithuanian market in 2016. It's been recently reported that the Russian chain Svetofor is considering the Lithuanian market.
