UK: Sainsbury's plans new convenience stores at Shell petrol stations
UK supermarket operator J Sainsbury has announced plans to open convenience stores at 100 existing Shell petrol locations across the UK, creating up to 2,000 jobs. This decision follows a successful trial at six sites combining Shell's branded forecourts and Sainsbury's Local store format. Sainsbury's said the emphasis of each site will be on convenience, quality fuels and ease of shopping. The stores will provide a range of ready meals, quality fresh fruit, vegetables and prepared salads, beers, wines and spirits, bakery, everyday non-food items and Shell's car care products.
