Sainsbury’s Aims To Bring Store to Bramhall

21 Jan 2014

Sainsbury’s aim to bring a store to Bramhall is happening.  Plans have been announced for a new Sainsbury’s Local in Bramhall Village Square in Stockport.

Sainsbury’s has submitted a planning application to Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council and, if approved, the plans will see a new 3,800 sq ft food shop in Bramhall complete with a cash machine.

The proposed store, which will replace the Co-Operative, will also create up to 25 full and part-time jobs for the local community.

Commenting on the application, Peta Brydon, Acquisitions Manager for Sainsbury’s North West said:

“The opportunity to redevelop the former Co-Operative is an exciting one for Sainsbury’s and the local community. The store would complement the mix of independent shops in Bramhall Village Square and provide local shoppers with additional choice.

Sainsbury’s Locals are not full-sized supermarkets and provide a convenient location to do a basket shop, topping up their main weekly shop.”

Paul Wrigglesworth, Associate Director at Himor Group, owners of the shopping and business centre said:

“A Sainsbury’s Local in Bramhall Village Square will significantly enhance the retail area and, importantly, provide local employment. It will support the vibrancy of the local shopping area, helping to retain and add footfall in the square.”

The proposed Sainsbury’s Local would not be a 24-hour store and would trade from 7am – 11pm everyday. Sainsbury’s has applied for a license to allow the store to sell alcohol while a customer entrance to the rear of the store for when the main shopping centre closes in the evenings has also been proposed.

The plans will now be considered by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council and Sainsbury’s hopes to be open by mid-April.
