This morning Sainsbury's welcomed customers to the only supermarket brand at London City Island, E14. 

The new convenience store is right in the heart of a new residential development by Ballymore and is home to an excellent range of fresh food and convenience products. The Sainsbury’s Local also provides customers with a convenient place to pick up a coffee thanks to the in-store, Costa coffee machine.

The store has created 21 new jobs and will trade from 7am-11pm seven days a week.

The opening was marked by the store team, who were also joined by neighbours from the English National Ballet to celebrate the first day in business. Dancers attended a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Sainsbury’s colleagues at 9.30am.

London City Island is unique new riverside development and 12 acre neighbourhood - creating a ‘mini-Manhattan’ - in Leamouth, London.  The developer, EcoWorld Ballymore, is formed of EcoWorld, one of Malaysia’s leading property developers and Ballymore, who have over 20 years’ experience in the London property market.

Locate Retail are delighted to have acted for Sainsbury’s in the acquisition of the premises for their new store. Locate Retail is retained by Sainsbury’s Local to source and secure new premises across North London.
