Sainsbury’s Neighbourhood Hub stores are a food-led extension of Sainsbury’s renowned convenience offer and have been set up to serve longer missions due to their size and location. There are now a total of seven stores showcasing the new format.
“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.”
Most of the new stores feature a new Argos Click & Collect facility, so customers can pick up groceries whilst an Argos colleague is picking up their order.
Alongside these new Hub stores, a further four Sainsbury’s convenience stores have launched additional Neighbourhood Hub product ranges.
These range improvements can be seen at stores in Ascot, Bishopston and two in Hackney.
Until June 28, customers will be rewarded with bonuses via the app as part of the supermarket’s mission to “help everyone eat better”.
Sainsbury’s chief marketing officer, Mark Given said: “As part of our new brand commitment to Help Everyone Eat Better, we are bringing back The Great Big Fruit and Veg Challenge and giving customers the opportunity to earn bonus Nectar points when they purchase fruit and veg throughout June.
“We hope that by participating in the challenge, customers are inspired to pack in more nutritious food, while getting more out of their points balance.
“As a supermarket serving communities across the country, we have a responsibility to encourage our customers to eat delicious food that is healthier for people and better for the planet, and the challenge is one of the many ways we are doing this.”
