Sainsbury's to open store in new Tottenham stadium

The deal with Sainsbury's will enable the Northumberland Development Project, the Tottenham  regeneration vehicle, to move into building works and comes days after the football club secured unanimous planning consent from Haringey Council. Work will start in the coming months, with the opening planned for late 2013.

Sainsbury’s has also announced that the new High Road convenience store will reopen in April on a site destroyed during the riots, creating around 25 new jobs.  Following the riots, the retailer seconded a Kay Horne, senior store manager, to work as the area's Business Connector in a pilot programme run by Business in the Community. Horne has led the High Street Fund, helping to distribute £600,000 in grants to local shops to support the regeneration of the area.

Justin King, Sainsbury's chief executive said: "Our investment represents a real boost for Tottenham, bringing both new jobs and an exciting place to shop. The opening of our local store on Tottenham High Road also reinforces our commitment to a vibrant future for Tottenham's high street. Sainsbury's has been trading in Tottenham for over a quarter of a century and we're proud to invest in the area at this important time."

Daniel Levy, chairman, Tottenham Hotspur added: "We are delighted that Sainsbury's will become the supermarket provider in the Northumberland Development Project. This will be one of the largest supermarkets of its kind in London and will help bring a greater vibrancy and attract new trade to the area.

"Both ourselves and Sainsbury's are proud of our roots in Tottenham and are committed to working to deliver major regeneration in an area with such a real need."
