Work starts on new Local store in Tavistock Street


Work has started on a new Sainsbury’s Local in Tavistock Street, Bedford.

The store is scheduled to open later this summer with 25 full or part-time jobs expected to be created.

Robin Ockendon, Sainsbury’s acquisitions surveyor, said: “I am delighted that construction works have started on our new Sainsbury’s Local. The store will revitalise a vacant unit, create new jobs and will provide an economic boost to the area by increasing footfall to the benefit of existing traders.

“The store will offer a fresh and convenient selection of products and will complement the surrounding area well.”
