With a history of more than 140 years, and close to 800 stores throughout the UK, Sainsbury's
is one of the most recognised high-street names in the UK.
From its very first shop in Drury Lane, London, in 1869, Sainsbury's has come a long way, and now operates close to 800 stores in the United Kingdom, with over 2,000 suppliers, more than 30,000 products, and with a staff of more than 150,000.
Now, with the advent of online shopping, Sainsbury's is making its name in online retail too, and offers a real alternative to other online stores, such as Tesco
, which has previously been dominant in this sector for several years.
