Sainsbury’s Bramhall Local reopens in a new site as a brand-new store.
The employee team that makes up Sainsbury’s Bramhall Local has remained the same since the shop opened in 2014, but it now has a new location. On Thursday, February 22, the convenience store in Village Square, Bramhall, shuttered its doors for the last time. Today, Sainsbury’s Bramhall Woodford Road Local reopened in new space close by.
The new 4,115 sq ft Sainsbury’s Local is over 1,000 sq ft larger than the original, giving customers access to a wider variety of high quality, great value convenience products than before. It also has a revamped look and feel to suit the retailer’s most recent store design. Additionally, it will now be available for an extra hour every day, accommodating clients from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week.
Customers will be able to pick up items from the well-known brands of Argos, Habitat, and Tu Clothing after ordering them online via the instore Click and Collect service, in addition to tasty food like fresh fruit and vegetables, healthy snacks and food-to-go, as well as bread and pastries baked instore on a daily basis.
In celebration of the opening of the relocated Sainsbury’s store, which will also provide customers with hot beverages on the go via a Costa Coffee machine, coworkers and customers congregated outside this morning.
All 17 employees from the original store have relocated to Sainsbury’s Bramhall Woodford Road Local, where they will continue to be involved in the neighborhood’s affairs as well as Sainsbury’s national charitable endeavours, such as its collaboration with Neighbourly to donate excess food.
“We’re thrilled to introduce our customers in Bramhall to this stylish new incarnation of the Sainsbury’s Local that has already served the community for almost nine years,” said Patrick Dunne, Sainsbury’s Property Director. I expect both local and out-of-town customers will appreciate the extra options and convenience the store will offer as a result of our investment, and I eagerly await their feedback.
Local store manager for Sainsbury’s in Bramhall Woodford Road, Nicola Phythian, stated: “We’re thrilled to be showcasing our fantastic new store for the first time today, where customers will be able to experience the same fantastic service from the same great team. I want to express my gratitude to all of our team members and supporters for working so diligently to make today’s relaunch a triumph.
This week, Sainsbury’s announced it will replace the conventional plastic tray packaging for its complete beef mince line with a vacuum-packed alternative. The packaging format, which makes use of at least 55% less plastic, is the newest in a line of initiatives from the retailer as it strives to reduce the amount of plastic used in own-brand goods’ packaging by half by 2025.
