Sainsbury’s Develops Special Warehouse For Online Grocery Expansion

Sainsbury’s Online currently delivers to over 190,000 customers every week with sales growth of 15% per year. With online orders being the fastest growing area in the grocery industry, Sainsbury’s is leading the pack by shifting their focus to these customers. Jon Rudoe, Sainsbury’s Director of Online, Digital & Cross-Channel, said:

The site will be purpose built with the Sainsbury’s customer in mind and will support our existing store based operation, something that will continue to be the foundation of our online grocery business. I am confident that this new facility will take our online grocery operation to the next level and put us in a perfect position to meet the growing demand in London and the South East.
