Sainsbury’s Bramhall Local reopens as brand-new store in new location

Sainsbury’s Bramhall Local has served the local community since 2014 and while the colleague team that makes up the store is not changing, the store itself has a new home.

The convenience store in Village Square, Bramhall closed its doors for the last time on Thursday 22nd February and has today reopened in new premises nearby as Sainsbury’s Bramhall Woodford Road Local.

A bright, fresh new Sainsbury’s Local with a revamped look and feel to fit the retailer’s latest store design, the new 4,115 sq. ft. store is over 1,000 sq. ft. larger than the original, meaning customers will have access to a larger range of high quality, great value convenience products than before.

Colleagues and customers gathered outside this morning to cut the ribbon and celebrate the launch of the relocated Sainsbury’s store, which will also offer customers hot drinks on the go via a Costa Coffee machine.

All 17 colleagues from the original store have moved to Sainsbury’s Bramhall Woodford Road Local and will continue to play an active role in the local community whilst also contributing to Sainsbury’s nationwide charitable initiatives, such as its surplus food donation partnership with Neighbourly.

Patrick Dunne, Sainsbury’s Property Director, said: “We’re delighted to introduce our customers in Bramhall to this stylish new incarnation of the Sainsbury’s Local that has already served the community for nearly nine years. I hope local and visiting customers alike will enjoy the added convenience and choice the store will provide following our investment and I look forward to hearing what they think.”

Nicola Phythian, Sainsbury’s Bramhall Woodford Road Local Store Manager, said: “We’re excited to be showcasing our fantastic new store for the first time today, where customers will be able to enjoy the same brilliant service from the same great team. I’d like to thank our colleagues along with everyone else that has supported us for all their hard work to ensure today’s relaunch has been a success.”

Sainsbury’s this week announced it is removing traditional plastic tray packaging across its entire beef mince range and replacing it with a vacuum-packed alternative. The packaging format, which uses a minimum of 55% less plastic, is the latest move in a series of initiatives from the retailer as it works towards its goal of halving its use of plastic packaging in own brand products by 2025.
