Sainsbury's Archive

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if it's been posted before but today i discovered that Sainsbury's have archived each store online so that you can view media about them, and it's a treasure trove!

https://www.sainsburyarchive.org.uk/branch/branches/

I've picked a few from my local stores so far.

Hadleigh Road in Ipswich 1992.

Some early 1980s views of the Dover branch of Sainsbury's, which until the Deal branch opened in the late 1990s, was the nearest one to where I grew up in east Kent. It only lasted from 1980 to 1992, as the Tesco which opened just outside the town in 1988 killed it:

The big void behind the 305 in the third photo was eventually filled by the Charlton Centre, which was conceived as a small-but-perfectly-formed shopping centre, but is something of a 'dead mall' these days. Apparently, Sainsbury's still owns the leasehold of the building it was located in, even though it's been empty since the mid-2000s. Such is Dover.

I don’t know how you guys have done it, I can’t work my way round the site. I click on Newcastle Sainsbury’s (Staffordshire) and I get every other store. Hanley store I can’t see any pictures. Fuck me I hate technology.

Same here, trying to look for Colchester Tollgate but not getting anywhere. Thanks for posting the Suffolk ones Trig, that's what car parks looked like when I was young. Lots of nice local registrations too!

I'm the same, struggling to find anything for the Swansea branch that opened in the late 80's, but I suppose they're may just not be many files???

Quite possibly so. 

 

Does anyone else think that whoever was taking the pictures was a shiter before it was cool.
