Sainsbury’s sets sail to another Local store in Wapping London Dock

Sainsbury’s has opened the doors to its new Wapping London Dock Local store, with the modern convenience store now open to customers from 7am through to 11pm seven days a week.

The new Local store in the heart of Wapping will serve nearby residents who call the area home and will be a convenient and fresh destination for commuters and visitors to the neighbourhood. The new store is just moments from major London landmarks and tourist destinations including the Tower of London and Tower Bridge and will stock a great selection of everyday essentials and food-to-go, so customers can get what they need as they go about their busy lives. 

The new store features a fresh instore bakery and customers will be able to grab a coffee to takeaway with the addition of a Costa coffee machine. 

Sainsbury’s Property Director Patrick Dunne said: “We’re really looking forward to serving customers at London Dock, especially the growing residential community. This store is a great asset to our estate and gives us prime position to serve residents, commuters and tourists. We’re proud to be opening another convenience store in the London region to give more customers access to our high quality, great value products.” 

Wapping London Dock Local Store Manager Asraf Bhuiyan said: “This store has a great selection of fresh produce and household grocery products, and we have a fantastic team of 21 colleagues who are all really looking forward to getting to work and serving our new customers.”   

The Sainsbury’s team will play an active role in the local community and support Sainsbury’s nationwide community programmes and charity partners. In January Sainsbury’s also announced an additional £1 million community fund for stores to donate to charities and other good causes in their local areas. This follows Sainsbury’s ‘Help Brighten a Million Christmases’ campaign that raised £6 million in December for over 800 local charity partners. 

Sainsbury’s Wapping London Dock colleagues were joined by representatives from Jesuit Refugee Service UK to cut a ribbon and officially open the store.
