Sainsbury’s puts down roots in Aberdeen’s Countesswells
Sainsbury’s has opened a new convenience store in the Countesswells district of Aberdeen.
Spanning 2,503 square feet, the Sainsbury’s Local store opens from 7am to 11pm seven days a week and is located in the new community’s first neighbourhood centre, next to where the Countesswells Primary School will be situated.
The shop will stock a wide range of fresh food, fruit and vegetables as well as branded and own-brand groceries and household products. There is also an in-store bakery and self-service Costa coffee machine.
Sainsbury’s property director Patrick Dunne said: “I’m delighted that Sainsbury’s is the first retailer to become part of the exciting new community in Countesswells. Our passion for great quality food, convenience, value and excellent service makes us a natural fit for the town and we’re very pleased to be welcoming our new Local into Sainsbury’s long established Scottish estate which now has over 130 stores and over 9,000 colleagues.”
Countesswells now has around 600 new homes on site and also features extensive landscaped grounds including the Cults Burn Park, a playpark and a community orchard.
Alex Goodfellow, director of Countesswells Development Limited, added: “Sainsbury’s arrival in Countesswells marks another key milestone in our commitment to delivering a highly attractive community that combines the best of modern living with a tranquil, rural setting. This investment in the new community supports local jobs and provides a much-needed local supermarket, which we know will be welcomed by residents.”
