Sainsbury's opens 600th UK supermarket
Sainsburys has opened the doors to its 600th UK supermarket at The Crescent Hinckley.
The 107,000 square foot store is the first of several national names to open at the new £60 million scheme which will also include a Cineworld, TK Maxx, Costa Coffee, Prezzo, Simply Gym, Poundland and a number of local operators.
John Davies, Sainsbury’s Hinckley store manager, said: “We think we’ve got great products to offer – from a wide range of food and drinks, to clothing, as well as our café. We’ve got 220 colleagues, 200 of which are from the local area. We’ve had a very warm welcome from the people of Hinckley and we’re looking forward to becoming part of the community here.”
The Crescent Hinckley has been developed by the Tin Hat Partnership and is one of only five new town centre shopping developments to open in the UK in 2015.
Tony Baker of the Tin Hat Partnership, said: “We are delighted to see Sainsbury’s up and running. It was a great show of faith in the scheme and in Hinckley to have them as our anchor tenant.”
