Sainsbury’s signs up for brand-new store in Jackton retail park


SAINSBURY’S plans to bring its commitment to providing good food for all of us to the community of Jackton, South Lanarkshire. The retailer has recently signed an agreement with C.V.O. Limited for a new Sainsbury’s Local store in the retail centre currently being developed on Eaglesham Road.

Sainsbury’s is the first tenant to sign up for the new development, where it hopes to serve as an anchor for a variety of other tenants and become the first grocery store to serve customers from within the village. 

Operating between 7am and 11pm, the new store will feature a carefully curated selection of Sainsbury’s great value, high-quality food and general merchandise. Providing everything from fresh bread and cakes baked daily in-store to delicious fruit and veg, meat, fish and meal solutions, the new store will bring more convenience and choice to residents in Jackton, however busy their daily lives.  

As well as a Costa Coffee machine, customers will also be able to take advantage of a new Click & Collect service in the store, conveniently enabling them to order online from Sainsbury’s much-loved Argos, Habitat and Tu Clothing brands for collection whilst picking up their groceries.

Sainsbury’s investment in Jackton will also see the retailer create around 15 new jobs, as well as help support good causes in the community, for example by redistributing surplus food locally to those who need it most via its partnership with Neighbourly.

David Pilbeam, Sainsbury’s Director of Acquisitions, Capital Projects and Engineering, said: “We’re passionate about delicious food and we want to make it easier for customers to access it wherever we can, so we’re delighted to confirm our plans for a new Sainsbury’s store in Jackton. We hope our investment in the village, creating jobs and a convenient new place for people to shop locally, will benefit the community for years to come.”
