A new Sainsbury’s Local has opened in Windermere creating 17 new jobs for the local community.
The new convenience store will trade from 7am until 11pm, seven days a week, offering customers a wide range of groceries and fresh foods. The store features include an in-store bakery, ready meals, fresh fruit and vegetables, sandwiches and chilled beer and wine.
Robert Collyer, Roger Pickup and search dog Ted from Langdale Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team joined store manager David Catterall to cut the official ribbon of the new store and declared it open for business.
Commenting on the opening, store manager David, said:
“As the new store manager of the Windemere Main Road Local, I am extremely proud to be opening our new store today. Colleagues and I have been looking forward to welcoming our new customers and showcasing the great range of products we have on offer.
I would like to thank Robert, Roger and Ted who joined us today for the ribbon cutting, we hope to continue working closely with the rest of the local community.”
Ben Berry commented saying:
“Sainsbury’s is a great brand that I welcome to the town. This site was under threat after the sale from Morrisons to a management buyout which resulted in some stores closing in the North West. This investment from Sainsbury’s shows that Windermere has a vibrant and growing economy.”
