Store gallery: Inside Sainsbury’s new ‘neighbourhood hub’ format

Juicing machines give shoppers the option of purchasing their own freshly squeezed orange juice.

Sainsbury’s is ramping up plans to roll out its larger ‘neighbourhood hub’ convenience store format.

The grocer has opened two new sites under the concept, in Midhurst, West Sussex, and Bishop’s Waltham, Hampshire.  

Sainsbury’s said the stores are designed to offer consumers a “one-stop shop” proposition and cater for the shift towards longer shopping missions and bigger basket sizes that has been driven by the coronavirus pandemic. 

Key features of the new stores include coffee-to-go, fresh orange juicers, beauty and cosmetics areas and collection points for Argos and Tu clothing orders made online.
