Sainsbury’s is one of the UK’s leading retailers and has been trading for over 145 years.

We opened our first convenience store in Hammersmith in 1998 and now run over 700 convenience shops.

Our business is growing at 18% and we have ambitious plans to expand our convenience store portfolio across the country.

We have one of the strongest covenants in the marketplace and an award winning track record of working in partnership with agents, developers and landlords to open new stores.

Sainsbury’s has immediate requirements for new convenience stores across Great Britain. We have a flexible approach and will consider all types of properties and locations.

We are flexible on size as long as the location is right, but as a guide:

  • Visible and accessible
  • 1,500 - 9,500 sq ft gross
  • Backup and sales can be split over two floors
  • Minimum of 2,000 sq ft at ground floor
  • Parking not essential
  • Leasehold or Freehold

All types of properties/land considered:

  • Existing business units
  • New and mixed use developments
  • Pub conversions
  • Redevelopments
  • PFS site
  • Greenfield locations

All types of locations are considered:

  • On prime pitch/strong adjacencies
  • Busy urban high streets
  • Neighbourhood or local centres with good residential catchments
  • Emerging housing developments
  • Main roads
  • Out facing shopping centres
  • Close to transport hubs
