Sainsbury’s will launch a pop-up Click and Collect car park service in Bishop’s Waltham before it opens its new store on the Budgens site.
Refurbishment of the former Budgens store began today and the new Sainsbury’s Neighbourhood Hub store will open in November.
Ahead of this company is starting its click and collect service in the car park in from Sunday 13th September. Orders can be placed from Wednesday 9th September.
Customers will be able to browse and purchase their items from the comfort of their homes and can then pick up their order during a time slot of their choice from the store car park.
The Click and Collect slots will be subject to availability and customers can book a maximum of one slot per week. Next day delivery will be available for orders made before 11pm and the service is free for orders over £40. A cost of £4 will be added to the orders below £40.
In addition to the new local Click and Collect, residents will also be able to use Sainsbury’s Groceries Online service or Sainsbury’s Assisted Shopping scheme in order to get what they need while temporarily unable to visit the local store.
The new Bishop’s Waltham Sainsbury’s will be one of only three Neighbourhood Hub stores in the country and will be around twice the size of a Sainsbury’s Local store.
The new store will offer a range of new features including an Argos collection point.
Patrick Dunne, Sainsbury’s Property Director said: “We’ve been pleased by the warm welcome from local people since we announced our plans to open a new Neighbourhood Hub store in Bishop’s Waltham.
“We’re committed to minimising disruption to residents and customers as we embark on this exciting upgrade and thank everyone for their understanding as we refurbish the store.”
Many independent retailers in Bishop’s Waltham already offer their own click and collect services – and many also do home deliveries.
