Sainsbury’s new supermarket in Kendal officially opens

Sainsbury's has just opened its new Kendal supermarket, located on Shap Road. It offers customers a choice of quality food and clothing for fantastic value, as well as a variety of convenient services, including an Argos and Specsavers.

Alongside a wide range of branded and Sainsbury's own-brand groceries, the Kendal supermarket also includes an in-store bakery. From October, the store will also serve the local community by fulfilling online orders and deliveries.

Sainsbury's always aims to employ people from the local community and the store has created 210 jobs, the majority of which have been taken by people new to the business.

Stuart Butters, Sainsbury's Kendal Store Manager, said, 'The new store looks fantastic and we have a great team of colleagues - most of whom are new to Sainsbury's - who are really excited to welcome and serve customers.

'Kendal residents can look forward to a distinctive and differentiated choice of quality food as well as access a huge range of Argos products, all under one roof.'

The Kendal store will trade from 7am until 10pm Monday to Saturday and 11am until 5pm on Sundays.
