Sainsbury’s has launched its first new store of the year at Cambridge Street in Harrogate.

Spanning 2,293 square feet, the Sainsbury’s Local convenience store in the heart of the North Yorkshire town will be open from 7am to 11pm seven days a week and will sell a selection of fresh food, fruit and vegetables together with branded and own brand grocery items.

It will also feature an in-store bakery, juicer and coffee machine as well as a food-to-go section selling sandwiches, salads and hot takeaway food.

Sainsbury’s is committed to using 100% renewable electricity across its entire estate, meaning that the new store will not rely on any fossil fuels for its energy needs. To improve energy efficiency,  it has been fitted out with 100% LED lighting and its chilled sections will use only natural refrigerants, alongside sophisticated Aerofoil shelf-edge technology to help retain cool air throughout the store’s fridges.
