Waitrose To Open For New London Supermarkets

Waitrose is set to expand its presence in the capital after announcing its acquisition of four London outlets from high-street retailer Woolworths .
The upmarket grocer, part of the John Lewis Partnership, confirmed it is purchasing stores in Chiswick, Clapham, Edgware Road and Islington and hopes the new supermarkets will help bring in a further 200,000 London shoppers.
Commenting on the acquisition, Waitrose MD Mark Price said: “These shops will consolidate our position in London, bringing the total number of branches in the region to 44.”
“We are delighted to add these prime locations to our portfolio of shops, particularly as they are sited in our heartland areas where Londoners have been requesting Waitrose branches for many years,” he added.
The new London stores are expected to open in time for the busy Christmas season.
