£12m expansion at Sainsbury’s in Scarborough

First published in

A £12 million extension will be built at a Scarborough superstore.

The plan is to expand Sainsbury’s Falsgrave Road store by 20,000 sq ft. Redundant warehouse buildings on the site will be knocked down to provide space and contractors Barr Construction will also totally refurbish the existing store with new flooring and ceilings as well as improved staff facilities.

The Falsgrave Road store’s staff will have access to a new kitchen area, meeting room and offices, while a mezzanine floor will be created to allow space for a new Sainsbury’s cafe.

Outside, the car park and access roads will be resurfaced while the service road will be relocated to provide better access.

An eco-friendly rainwater harvesting system will be installed to recycle rainwater for use within the building.

The supermarket will continue to trade throughout the 34-week project and the contractors will work with the store to minimise disruption.
