Sainsbury’s staff have cut the ribbon on the supermarket chain’s latest store in Leeds city centre.

Joined by representatives from Leeds Children’s Hospital, which the Sainsbury’s Local has pledged to support, workers have welcomed the first batch of customers to the Vicar Lane site that opened this week.

Around 20 full and part-time jobs have been created through the opening of the store, which is open everyday from 7am to 11pm.

Store manager Dane Underwood said: “Our location in Leeds city centre will provide a convenient place for shoppers and nearby residents to top-up their weekly shop.”

Leeds Children’s Hospital provides one of the most comprehensive range of specialist children’s hospital services in the UK.
