Sainsbury’s new Shenley Church End store opens tomorrow


Sainsbury’s new supermarket in Shenley Church End will open tomorrow morning at 9am.

The store will feature a wide selection of fresh food counters including fish, meat, pizza, hot food and deli counters together with an in-store bakery and a salad bar, all alongside a wider selection of foods and other items than the existing Sainsbury’s Local.

The store will be opened by Georgia Stiel from Two Mile Ash school who won the summer active drawing competition.

The opening of a new store has created 60 jobs, which have been filled by local residents in addition to staff at the Sainsbury’s Local who have transferred over to the new store.

The Sainsbury’s Local in Shenley Church End will remain open as normal until it closes tonight at 11pm.

“We are all really excited to be opening our new store in Shenley Church End, which will offer a wider selection of items than our existing Sainsbury’s Local,” said Simon Ainger, Sainsbury’s store manager.

“Since the Local opened it has proved very popular and we are really looking forward to continuing to work closely with the local community at our new store.”
