Sainsbury’s Opens

26 Apr 2014

A local scout group and charity have joined forces with Sainsbury’s to open a new Local convenience store in Bramhall Village Square.

Scouts from 1st Bramhall Scout Group, their leader Andrew Corrie and staff from St Ann’s Hospice joined store manager Richard Shaw in cutting the ribbon and officially opening the Sainsbury’s store, which has created 25 new full and part-time jobs.

Richard Shaw, the store manager, said: “It’s fantastic to open the new store to the public for the first time and I’d like to thank the scouts and St Ann’s Hospice for helping us cut the ribbon. The store has created a range of new jobs for local people and will provide those living nearby with a handy place to top up their weekly shop. The store will also give the local economy a timely boost and will complement the existing shops in Bramhall.”

As part of its Active Kids initiative, Sainsbury’s also gave a trolley and two baskets full of sports gear to the scout group.

Andrew Corrie, 1st Bramhall Scout Group’s Leader, said “We’ve really enjoyed taking part in the opening of the new Sainsbury’s store in Bramhall Village Square. The scouts have enjoyed being a part of the occasion and the store colleagues have been more than hospitable to us. We’d also like to thank the store for donating the trolleys of sports equipment to the group. We’ll put it all to good use.”

Carol Carter, from St Ann’s Hospice, said “It was nice to be invited along to the store opening and we’ve enjoyed our time meeting James and the team. It demonstrate that our work in the community has been recognised by Sainsbury’s and we hope to work with them again in the future.”

The store is open every day from 7am until 10pm and offers a wide range of groceries and fresh food.
