A QUICK PREVIEW OF WHAT'S IN STORE AT SAINSBURY'S

The day many shoppers in Ross-on-Wye have been waiting for is almost upon us for at 9am tomorrow, Wednesday, 15th July Sainsbury's will be opening its doors to the public. Visitors to the new store will be amazed at the transformation that the old Somerfield Store has undergone in just six weeks. Wyenot News and other guests were invited to a pre-opening tour of Sainsbury's which will operate under the management of Denver Martin.

After a welcome drink and some delicious canapés, guest were shown around the store with its wide, clean and well lit aisles. Upon entry to the store, shoppers are no longer greeted by a row of checkouts stretching before them. Instead, they are met by beautiful floral displays, fresh fruit and vegetables and huge displays of tempting goods. The aisles are well sign posted and there are plans of the store to help to find your way around. The in store bakery will be producing bread throughout the day. There is quite a range to choose from and a bread slicing service is available.

There is a self service checkout facility and on opening day, 'Bags for Life' will be free to customers.

Denver informed guests that it is not Sainsbury's intention to work against local traders but to work with them and the local community. He already has the numbers of several local causes which will certainly benefit from this new local amenity, as will Ross-on-Wye as a whole. A great quality shop with quality goods and service with a smile.

The staff at Sainsbury's are largely those who worked at the premises prior to Sainsbury's taking over. They are happy with the new look too and are looking forward to serving you in their new roles.
