Sainsbury’s has today shared more details about what shoppers can expect to see inside their new store off Colwick Loop Road when it opens later this year.
The UK shopping giant also revealed they expect the store to ‘open to customers in time for Christmas this year’.
They said multi-million pound investment in the community will provide an impressive selection of food and non-food products for local people, including Sainsbury’s popular Tu clothing range and Habitat home products.
The store also includes an Argos store inside the supermarket and customers are set to enjoy the convenience of a large car park plus a new Sainsbury’s petrol filling station.
Sainsbury’s has revealed it has also partnered with Specsavers, offering eyecare and audiology services in the convenient setting of the new supermarket. Sainsbury’s said it ‘works with selected concession partners to provide customers with an even more convenient experience and give a locally curated and one-stop shop’.
Sainsbury’s property director Patrick Dunne said: “I’m very proud of the progress on site.
“Many people across our team have worked on this scheme for many years to ensure it best suits the needs of residents now and for future generations. It’s because of their hard work that we’re able to build a new flagship store today with the very best that Sainsbury’s has to offer.
We’re partnering with Specsavers to give our customers an even more convenient shopping destination and they can get everything they need under one roof.
We’re always striving to enhance our offer for our customers and I’m sure residents are excited to hear what we’re planning for them.”
Once complete, the new Sainsbury’s will create over 150 store jobs across a range of roles and levels. Further information on working in the new store including position descriptions will be available on the Sainsbury’s website (https://sainsburys.jobs/) when recruitment commences. People with a passion for food, a friendly personality and great attitude who are interested in working at Sainsbury’s will need to apply online when the roles go live. Retail experience isn’t necessary as all training will be provided for successful applicants.
The new supermarket will also play an active role in the local community and will be supporting Sainsbury’s nationwide community programmes. In January Sainsbury’s also announced an additional £1 million community fund for stores to donate to charities and other good causes in their local areas. This follows Sainsbury’s ‘Help Brighten a Million Christmases’ campaign that raised £6 million in December for over 800 local charity partners, Comic Relief and FareShare.
