Sainsbury’s makes way to Liverpool’s Princes Dock

The supermarket will be taking residence at the Bean Café location off William Jessop Way, with the café moving next door, into the former unit of newsagent The Store.

A Sainsbury’s Local will open up on the ground floor of a 760-space multi-storey car park at Liverpool Waters. The 5,750 sq ft shop will include an in-store bakery and a free cash machine. It will also function as a collection point for Argos orders.

Liverpool City Council approved the Sainsbury’s location in January. Alder King was the planning consultant for the application.

Building work on the supermarket is to begin next week, according to Liverpool Waters owner Peel L&P. Peel plans for the nearly 150-acre former dockland to become a vibrant series of neighbourhoods with 9,000 new homes, a 4.7-acre park, hotels, and 3.3m sq ft of commercial space. The masterplan is currently undergoing consultation.

Regarding the Sainsbury’s Local, Liza Marco, senior asset manager at Liverpool Waters, said: “It will be a very welcome addition to the growing number of businesses now based at the Princes Dock neighbourhood.

“With increasing numbers of visitors, and further residential and commercial developments in the pipeline, this growing community will need access to a quality store selling a wide range of groceries, convenience foods, and beverages.”

The Princes Dock Sainsbury’s Local is expected to open early this summer.

Should do well with the number of residents, visitors, and workers in the area, hopefully in the not too distant future there will be a full size Sainsbury`s in Central docks to cater for those living in the new high-rise blocks that are promised stretching all the way to the Everton stadium.
As an aside Bean coffee are doing well in the city and beyond, they have another larger outlet opening in Liverpool One opposite the rear entrance to the Bluecoat.
