Sainsbury’s is set to move its head office after nearly two decades at its current location.

The grocer will move to the sustainable JJ Mack Building in London’s Farringdon after the lease at its present head office on Chancery Lane expires in 2025.

Sainsbury’s new head office at 33 Charterhouse Street will comprise 68,002 sq ft.

Chief executive Simon Roberts said: “We’re delighted to have signed a new agreement that will see Sainsbury’s London store support centre relocate to 33 Charterhouse Street in 2025. 

“This is a really exciting opportunity for us to create a modern and sustainable workspace that is better suited to our needs and ways of working as our business continues to evolve.

“Sainsbury’s has a long and proud history in London, dating back to 1869 when John James and Mary Ann Sainsbury opened their first shop in Drury Lane. 

“We know that our success depends on our brilliant colleagues and, by moving to a more flexible, efficient workspacem we can remain committed to maintaining a presence in central London while taking another important step in delivering our Save to Invest plan, which will enable us to invest where it matters most to our customers.”
