Sainsbury’s has announced the expansion of its Neighbourhood Hub stores initiative across the UK.
The new format is a food-led extension of the supermarket chain’s convenience offering, with sites in Woodhall Spa, Midhurst and Bishop’s Waltham
The majority of hubs have an Argos Click and Collect facility, and a series of new product ranges for customers.
Currently, the chain is planning to open 18 more Neighbourhood Hub stores over the next few years.
Patrick Dunne, Sainsbury’s property director, said: “Our newest hub stores look great and I’m sure our customers will enjoy doing more of their shopping closer to home.
“We’re continually investing in our store network and adapting our estate to ensure it best reflects our customers’ changing shopping habits and local demand.”
He added: “Our Neighbourhood Hubs have proved extremely popular and that has really motivated the team to open more for our customers through a combination of acquiring new sites and upgrading current stores.”
