New Sainsbury’s store in Colwick to be open in time for Christmas

A new Sainsbury’s supermarket in Nottingham will be open in time for Christmas.

The new 50,000 square foot store, located off Colwick Loop Road, is nearing completion, with construction still ongoing.

An official opening date is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

The new store is providing a substantial investment into the local area, delivering around 200 jobs for local people across a range of roles and levels.

The internal fit-out works are currently taking place, building signage has been installed throughout the store and the ‘Pay@Pump’ Petrol Station and external landscaping are also nearly finished.

An Argos store will also be situated inside the supermarket.

Once open, Sainsbury’s new supermarket will use only renewable energy and be reliant on no fossil fuels.

Paul Wain, Sainsbury’s Colwick Store Manager, said: “It’s fantastic to see the new supermarket coming to life. I’m looking forward to leading the new store team for this much-anticipated supermarket, which will improve shopping choice for local people.

“We’re working hard to make sure we can provide the best possible service for our customers, and we can’t wait to open our doors to the local community in the near future.”

Sainsbury’s Property Director Patrick Dunne said: “I’m extremely pleased to see the progress we’ve made on the new supermarket in Colwick.

“We understand that local people are keenly awaiting the new store and we are looking forward to meeting all of our new customers before Christmas.

“We’re passionate about providing a store for Colwick that sets the bar for sustainability and responsible development, as part of our pledge to become a Net Zero Business by 2040 at the latest.”
