Sainsbury’s opens flagship store in Wales

16th February 2024 | Jack Oliver

Sainsbury’s has opened the doors to a new flagship supermarket in Talbot Green, Wales.

The 53,000 sq ft store is centred around a food hall, which offers both branded and own-branded products, supplemented by digital signage and displays.

The new supermarket also features the retailer’s Habitat and TU Clothing ranges, as well as an Argos concession allowing customers to purchase toys, home products, and electrical devices while picking up their groceries.

Sainsbury’s Talbot Green also benefits from an attached car park with an ultra-rapid electric vehicle charging service, Smart Charge. The service enables customers to charge their electric vehicles at one of six 150kW+ charging bays in as little as 30 minutes. The supermarket is Sainsbury’s second location in Wales to feature Smart Charge and its 30th in the UK.

Customers will also be able to make use of a new Pay@Pump petrol station, a Starbucks coffee shop, and an on-site Timpson store.

Patrick Dunne, Sainsbury’s director of property, procurement and EV ventures, said: “I’m immensely proud of everyone who has helped to deliver this fantastic new store. We’re determined to be first choice for food, ensuring more customers in more of our stores can enjoy more brilliant Sainsbury’s food and Sainsbury’s Talbot Green is a prime example of how we’re striving towards that.

“It was also really exciting to celebrate the launch of our 30th Smart Charge location, the latest step in our plan to give confidence in public EV charging a major boost by building a trusted ultra-rapid charging brand that helps reduce range anxiety for EV drivers nationwide.

“I’d like to take the opportunity to thank the Talbot Green community for all your support and patience whilst we constructed this store – I appreciate it’s been a long time coming and I hope everyone will agree it was worth the wait.”
