Sainsbury’s opens new Local store in South London

Sainsbury’s has just opened its Carshalton Green Wrythe Lane Local in Sutton, conveniently located on a popular shopping parade. The new 2,842 sq f. store is open from 7am to 11pm seven days a week.

The newest Local store stocks a range of great value, high quality branded and own brand favourites, and customers can sample Sainsbury’s latest convenience range, from fresh fruit and veg, healthy snacks and food-to-go to sweet, savoury and frozen staples.

They can also choose from a selection of freshly baked bread and pastries every day, as well as pick up Argos, Habitat and Tu Clothing products ordered online via the instore Click and Collect service.

Formerly a Nisa Extra, Sainsbury’s welcomed the opportunity to work with store manager John Patel and his family to take the reins as they made the decision to retire from running the store after over twenty years. Members of the local community including John, along with Sara Walsh from food donation charity The Felix Project, joined colleagues this morning for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the reopening of the store as a brand-new Sainsbury’s.

Sainsbury’s is committed to supporting the communities it serves and as part of the store’s transformation, over £20,000 of stock from the previous store has already been donated to a range of local and nationwide causes including West Thornton Primary School, Company Shop and FareShare. The store has also partnered with Sutton Night Watch and will work with the charity to continue redistributing surplus food to those who need it most.

Patrick Dunne, Sainsbury’s Property Director, said, “We’re very grateful to have been given the chance to build on the great work that John and his family have done in Carshalton. We look forward to continuing to serve the local community in the form of a fantastic new Sainsbury’s Local. I can’t wait to hear what our customers think.”

Louise Cooke, Sainsbury’s Carshalton Green Wrythe Lane Local Store Manager, said: “I’m really looking forward to playing a part in the community along with my new team. From brilliant service to great quality Sainsbury’s products, I think our customers will love what we have to offer.”
