West Midlands-based AF Blakemore & Son has acquired the business of fellow Spar wholesaler South Wales-based Capper & Co.

The acquisition will take the turnover of the combined organisation to £1.1bn.

The move will create the largest Spar wholesaler in the UK, serving 1,096 of the symbol group's stores.

Meanwhile, the successor to Spar managing director Jerry Marwood who leaves this summer has been named as JJB Sports' Debbie Robinson. She previously worked as director of food marketing at The Co-operative Group.
