Sainsbury’s Local Unveils New Waterside Store at Princes Dock, Liverpool Waters

In late March, the supermarket chain Sainsbury’s opened a new ‘local’ store within Princes Dock, situated on Liverpool Waters, creating 20 job opportunities. This expansion aims to cater to the growing number of businesses and residents within Peel Waters’ lively waterfront district.

Occupying a ground floor unit beneath the 760-space multi-storey car park, the new 5,748 sq ft Sainsbury’s Local store on William Jessop Way offers a picturesque view of Princes Dock and provides various convenient amenities, including a cash machine, in-store bakery, and Argos collection point.

With over 2,000 residents now residing at Liverpool Waters, along with numerous workers and a year-round events programme, the new store will serve as another accessible facility for the local community.

Liverpool City Council granted planning permission for the new store last year, which was previously occupied by Bean Café and Holyrood Nursery. Both businesses have continued to operate, with Bean Café recently completing a high-spec fit-out of their new coffee house and deli following their relocation to the adjacent unit.

The opening of the new store follows a series of exciting developments for Princes Dock, which is poised to host the UK’s first Nordic-style public floating sauna. Additionally, Princes Dock will be the venue for the swim/run knockout event ‘The Eliminator’ scheduled for May 18.

Patrick Dunne, Sainsbury’s Property Director, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “We’re excited to welcome customers to try out our new store for the first time this week.”

Liza Marco, Senior Asset Manager at Liverpool Waters, commented, “Following significant growth at Princes Dock in recent months, and an increasing number of visitors to the neighbourhood, it’s great to see Sainsbury’s joining the large number of businesses now based here.”

Liverpool Waters is part of Peel Waters, a UK-wide portfolio of waterfront developments focused on delivering large-scale, sustainable regeneration projects. These initiatives aim to create jobs, spur economic growth, provide new homes, and enhance public spaces across the country.
