Sainsbury’s opens new Glasgow store in time for Christmas
Sainsbury’s has launched a new ‘Local’ convenience store in Glasgow’s Ingram Street.
Open from 7am to 11pm seven days a week, the 1,929 square foot shop will sell the supermarket’s range of fresh food, fruit and vegetables, and seasonal items along with branded and own brand grocery products. It also features an in-store bakery, juicer and Costa coffee machine.
In addition, the store will aim to cater for the diverse local community by stocking multiple specialist ranges including Polish, American and Oriental products, as well as free-from and meat-free options.
Situated in the heart of Glasgow’s Merchant City, the store is the third convenience shop to be opened by Sainsbury’s in Scotland this year. The move takes the retailer’s total number of stores in Scotland to 136.
Patrick Dunne, Sainsbury’s property director, said: “I’m delighted that we’ve been able to open another Sainsbury’s Local before Christmas, this time for customers in Glasgow’s busy city centre. I’d like to thank our amazing colleagues for all their hard work to get the store ready for opening and I look forward to seeing the team flourish as part of the vibrant community in the Merchant City.”
Steven Steel, Sainsbury’s Glasgow Ingram Street Local store manager, added: “It’s been really exciting to open our doors to the local community today. We’re proud to be putting Sainsbury’s fantastic range of products and brilliant customer service on the doorstep of the Merchant City and I can’t wait to hear what customers think of their new store.”
