About Sainsbury’s UK

In 1869 the business was formed as a partnership, when John James Sainsbury and his wife Mary Ann founded a store at 173 Drury Lane in Holborn, London.

Fresh food was the initial focus of John James Sainsbury’s business, but he later added packaged goods like tea and sugar.

The motto of his business was “Quality perfect, prices lower” as shown on a sign outside his first store in Islington.

Groceries were first available when John James bought a grocer’s branch at 12 Kingsland High Street, Dalston.

The business started to expand as the founder decided to buy multiple shops, and every shop offered home delivery.

The locations were carefully picked, with a parade’s center preferred over a corner business.

That allowed for a bigger display of goods, and also to be kept cooler in the summer, as there was no refrigeration.

Nowadays, the name of “Sainsbury’s” is well-known to people of all ages and demographics, In terms of high-quality and reasonably priced food shopping in the UK.
