Sainsbury’s has opened a new 2,700 sq. ft convenience store in Bristol.
The grocer said the store, Bristol Charlton Hayes Local, aims to offer customers a wide range of chilled, fresh and frozen grocery and household products.
It will also feature an instore bakery and a self-service Costa coffee machine. The store’s opening hours are 7am-11pm Monday to Sunday.
Sainsbury’s said its team will play an “active role” in the local area and support Sainsbury’s nationwide community programmes and charity partners.
In January, Sainsbury’s also announced an additional £1m community fund for stores to donate to charities and other good causes in their local areas.
The move followed Sainsbury’s ‘Help Brighten a Million Christmases’ campaign that raised £6m in December for over 800 charity partners, including local charities East and North Bristol Food Banks and North Bristol Community Project.
Patrick Dunne, property director at Sainsbury’s said: “We’re delighted to add this new local store to the Sainsbury’s estate. The store looks fantastic and I’m proud of all the hard work that’s been put in to make it come together.
“We ensure our stores are in the best locations for our customers and I’m sure residents in the local community will enjoy the value, quality and convenience of their new store.”
George Damsell, Bristol Charlton Hayes store manager, added: “Our aim is to provide great quality and value alongside friendly service, and the team of colleagues are excited to welcome and serve customers, providing them with a convenient place to pick up a coffee and their favourite grocery products.”
