Sainsbury’s has opened a Local convenience store in Marble Arch just five years after closing the old one.
The 2889 sq. ft site, located opposite Hyde Park, sells bread and pastries baked in-store plus “piping hot” coffee and “freshly-squeezed” orange juice from self-service machines.
Customers can also order Argos products online and pick them up from the shop.
“I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to bring a new Sainsbury’s Local to Marble Arch,” property director Patrick Dunne said.
“Whether for busy Londoners, residents or tourists, this store offers great convenience and quality food.”
Store manager Abdul Ojud added: “I firmly believe customers in Marble Arch are really going to enjoy having Sainsbury’s on their doorstep once again.”
It comes just days after Marks & Spencer’s redevelopment of its Oxford Street store, around half a mile from the new Sainsbury’s, was approved by Westminster Council.
The new building has been criticised as “overbearing”, “ugly”, and bad for the environment.
Store management at the Marble Arch Sainsbury’s will mentor young people via Westminster Befriend a Family, a local charity.
