Sainsbury’s has opened its new store at Newham Brunel Street Works, in collaboration with Vistry Partnerships.
The Big 4 grocer unveiled the store with a ribbon cutting ceremony led by the founder of Community Food Enterprise, Eric Samuel MBE.
The store features a wide range of grocery and household products, and includes a Costa Coffee machine for customers to pick up hot coffee to-go.
The store will be open from 7am to 11pm Monday to Sunday.
According to the grocer, its 23 employees will also be supporting the local community, assisting with charities including First Love Foundation, Community Food Enterprise and Neighbours in Poplar.
“It’s fantastic to be opening a Sainsbury’s Local store in this new development”, Sainsbury’s property director Patrick Dunne said.
“I know nearby residents will really enjoy being able to pick up their essentials here and experience the brilliant service our colleagues offer.”
Vistry Partnerships associate sales director Jai Gill added: “Having a trusted brand like Sainsbury’s on the doorstep is a valued amenity, not just for picking up groceries, but also in the extensive community work they do.
“We’re thrilled they’re opening up the doors here at Brunel Street Works today.”
