Sainsbury’s launches convenience store at Brunel Street Works
Sainsbury’s has launched a new store in London at Newham’s Brunel Street Works development.
The Sainsbury’s Local officially opened its doors to customers yesterday, with Eric Samuel MBE, founder of Community Food Enterprise in Newham, cutting the ribbon at the opening ceremony.
The store will offer nearby residents a wide range of grocery and household products as well as the opportunity to pick up a fresh coffee from a self-service Costa coffee machine. Situated next to Canning Town station, it will open from 7am to 11pm Monday to Sunday.
Sainsbury’s said the store’s 23-strong team will play an active role in the local area and support the retailer’s nationwide community programmes and charity partners. Charities in the area that Sainsbury’s has recently supported include Neighbours in Poplar, First Love Foundation and Community Food Enterprise.
Sainsbury’s property director Patrick Dunne said: “It’s fantastic to be opening a Sainsbury’s Local store in this new development. I know nearby residents will really enjoy being able to pick up their essentials here and experience the brilliant service our colleagues offer.”
