Kevin Hunt

SPAR retailer Kevin Hunt is Managing Director of the Lawrence Hunt & Co family business.

Always there for the community, the SPAR business has been operating very successfully in Lancashire for over 70 years.

Employing 480 people in 25 SPAR stores, 10 Post Offices and two Subway’s, the company has gone from strength to strength and more recently featured in The Grocer Top 10 convenience store operators.

Kevin is the third generation of his family to run the business, and is continuing the trend with his son Jack now working in-store.

Always investing in the future, Kevin is a firm believer in tuning his stores to meet the needs of his local customers and providing them with modern shopping solutions.

Kevin will talk about his fresh approach to independent retailing and the skills retailers need to survive and thrive in convenience retail today.
