Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

Sainsbury's milestone

A new Sainsbury's forecourt and store represent a major milestone for the supermarket giant as the number of Sainsbury's Local stores has exceeded its supermarkets for the first time.

The store, Sainsbury's Balsall Common Local in Coventry, is the 594th Sainsbury's Local.

Sainsbury's has pledged to open two new c-stores each week during 2013/14 and has opened 73 so far.

Mike Coupe, Sainsbury's group commercial director, said there was plenty of opportunity for the firm to grow, creating jobs for local people and revitalising high streets.
