In 1990, the brothers Piotr and Paweł Woś opened their first grocery store by Głogowska Street in Poznań. The name for the retail chain Piotr i Paweł reflects the first names of the two founders, as well as being the names of the two patron saints of Poznań: St. Peter and St. Paul.[4] The second store of the Woś brothers was opened in Stare Zegrze, an eastern borough located in Poznań. The store had a floor size of 300 squared metres. The popularity of the store came about due to its supply of imported goods from Germany.[3]

The late 1990s and the first decade of the twenty-first century saw the continued expansion of the delicatessen supermarkets. As of 2011, the company plans to expand its retail chain via 10 new stores annually.[4] Between 2011 and 2016, 57 new stores were opened.[1] In 2016, the company received the award of the Market of the Year for the "best quality of fresh produce".[5] The company opened 11 stores across Poland in 2016.[6] All shops are scheduled to rebrand as SPAR to end of 2020.[7] The first store to change is in Blue City, Warsaw[8]
