The new Sainsbury’s Nine Elms Point has opened creating 250 new jobs.
The new store sees Sainsbury’s return to the area, with the company having had a store there previously for over 30 years. The old store was demolished to pave the way for the current redevelopment of Nine Elms.
Commenting on the opening, store manager Andy, said: “It is fantastic to have Sainsbury’s back at the heart of a community that we previously served for over 30 years.”
Wandsworth Council Leader and co-chair of the Vauxhall Nine Elms Partnership Cllr Ravi Govindia said: “Congratulations to the Sainsbury’s team and a very warm welcome to their new and returning staff. The upgraded store is very impressive and the opening is another important milestone in this fast moving regeneration programme.”
