Sainsbury’s has today launched another store, opening to customers on Wembley’s High Road.
The store is supported by a colleague team of 17, including seven new recruits to the business. Most of the colleagues live nearby to the new store and are very excited to be working locally and serving the community.
The Sainsbury’s team will play an active role in the local area and support Sainsbury’s nationwide community programmes and charity partners. 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 charity partners, including local charities Brent Food Bank, Centrepoint – Llanover Road and The Felix Project.
Sainsbury’s Wembley Place Local store features over 2,600 products, including an excellent range of fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy, fresh bakery and other household grocery products. Customers can also pick up a coffee from the instore self-service Costa machine.
The convenience store was officially opened by Brent Council Mayor, Cllr. Ernest Ezeajughi and will be open to customers every day of the week from 7am until 11pm.
Mayor of Brent Council Cllr. Ernest Ezeajughi said: “This is a growing community and it’s wonderful to see it get the investment and services it needs to thrive. This new store brings more convenience and jobs, and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to mark the opening day with the Sainsbury’s team. We all know Sainsbury’s remains committed to feeding the nation throughout COVID-19 and it’s fantastic that even more people will be able to do their essential shopping as safely and efficiently as possible.”
Sainsbury’s Property Director Patrick Dunne said: “We’re excited to offer the local community a fresh and convenient shopping experience alongside Sainsbury’s renowned colleague service. This new edition to our store estate looks fantastic and I’m so proud of the hard work everyone has put in to get the store launch ready. It’s very rewarding seeing a new store come to life and I’m very pleased to welcome customers through the doors.”
Sainsbury’s Wembley Place Store Manager Jaber Mia said: “We are looking forward to becoming an essential part of the community in Wembley and providing employment for local people. We have a great team of colleagues who are really looking forward to meeting and serving our customers. This store gives residents convenience, quality and great value.”
