Sainsburys store kicks off Tottenham Hotspur stadium scheme
Sainsburys has opened a new 78,000 square foot store as part of the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium development.
Employing 280 people from the local area, the store was given the green light in February last year thereby enabling the stadium development project to move into the building phase after unanimous consent from Haringey council.
Sainsbury’s staff were joined for the opening by David Lammy MP, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy and club ambassador Ledley King, who is also an ambassador for the Mayor of London’s regeneration plans in the area.
Store manager Peter White said: “Tottenham has always been known for great trading, whether it’s in groceries or footballers, and as Sainsbury’s has been trading here for over quarter of a century, we've got a real connection to the area.
“We’re really pleased to be part of the regeneration of this vibrant part of London and employ 280 people at our new store in the stadium project. As a responsible employer, we always work with local partners to ensure that jobs go to local people, and that we support people into work who may have previously faced barriers.”
