Local benefits

Each new store typically employs 20-25 people in full and part-time jobs.

Our convenience stores make a positive difference to the communities we’re part of.

Our stores help boost footfall in the local area creating job opportunities and providing a foundation for existing businesses to grow and new ones to flourish.

We also set out to get involved and be a good neighbour.

Each and every store is part of a community and we make sure we connect our business to the local area. Each year customers and colleagues vote for their store’s Local Charity which the team then supports over the year. We also get involved with Comic Relief, Sport Relief and run the highly successful Active Kids programme.

This goes much further than straightforward fundraising and volunteering; it includes the sharing of knowledge, skills and ideas, benefitting both store and charity creating strong community links.

Our values

Our five values provide the framework for how we do business at Sainsbury's. They guide us in everything we do - from key business decisions to day-to-day activities.
