London Colney: Sainsbury's, Colney Fields Retail Park
London Colney: Sainsbury's, Colney Fields Retail Park
This Sainsbury's, just off Junction 22 of the M25 Motorway, is a little out of the ordinary as it used to be one of the company's Savacentre sites, of which there were only 13 in the country. The Savacentre brand was formed in 1975, originally as a joint enterprise between Sainsbury's and Bhs, selling food, clothing and electrical items, but became a wholly owned subsidiary of Sainsbury's in 1989. At the time they were built these 13 sites were some of the largest retail outlets in the country, but nowadays are indistinguishable from any new out-of-town supermarket, and the Savacentre brand name appears to have disappeared.
