With a near 150-year history, over 1,200 stores across the UK and around 160,000 colleagues, Sainsbury’s is one of the UK’s best-established businesses. Yet we never rest on our laurels. We’re exploring how we can keep improving the customer experience all the time, devising new ways of bringing people the products and service they deserve.
Our core ranges – food and groceries – are our bedrock. But we've expanded our offering to a huge degree. Nowadays we’re the business behind the UK’s 7th largest clothing brand by volume, Tu. Our Groceries Online business has gone through the roof. And we’re right now investing £150m in Digital & Technology to bring our customers the future of retailing before it happens. We even have our own bank, pharmacy and energy services.
We work closely with suppliers and farmers, reducing the impact on the environment, playing an active role in the communities we serve and making Sainsbury's a satisfying place to work as a retailer that takes its social responsibilities very seriously. Over 22 million shoppers every week choose us to supply their shopping, that's a whopping 16.5 percent market share. The numbers just go to prove that we have something really special here; it’s not just a great place for customers, it's a truly great place to work too.
