Spar forced to close stores due to cyber attack

The Spar convenience chain has been impacted by a cyber attack that has led to the closure of some of its stores.

Some 300 shops have been affected by the incident, although not all have had to close. However, those that have remained open have only been accepting cash due to them not being able to process debit and credit card payments.

The outage, which started on Sunday, is understood to have hit the company’s IT systems and staff emails.

A spokesperson for Spar said: “We are working to resolve this situation as quickly as possible. It is currently impacting stores’ ability to to process card payments meaning that a number of Spar stores are currently closed to shoppers or only taking cash payments.

“We apologise for the inconvenience this is causing our customers.”
