Part of the Project Jennifer redevelopment, the Sainsbury’s store offers a wide range of food and non-food products, as well as a café and clothing range. There is also an Argos store inside and a customer car park with around 460 spaces. Opening hours are Monday – Saturday 8:00am – 10pm; Sunday 10am-4pm.
The Argos store, which has created around 15-20 jobs, offers thousands of popular products for immediate pickup. 20,000 products can also be ordered to collect in-store within hours and 20,000 extra products can be ordered for home delivery. There is also be an eBay collection point so buyers can collect their eBay purchases.
The move comes after Sainsbury’s acquired Home Retail Group, which owns Argos and is part of its strategy to help its customers shop whenever and wherever they want.
The combination of Sainsbury’s and Argos will enable customers to shop conveniently through different online, mobile and store channels. It will also give customers more choice across different product ranges, creating the UK’s largest non-food retailer.
