Stop the closure of Sainsburys Stockport Store

Stop the closure of Sainsburys Stockport Store

Withdraw your decision to close the town centre Sainsburys store, Warren Street, Stockport

Why is this important?

87 workers at Stockport's town centre Sainsburys store are facing redundancy in January 2021 because of Sainsbury PLC's decision to close the store.

The workers at this store were amongst those keyworkers who risked their health and their lives during the Covid19 pandemic by working throughout in order to ensure that all of us continued to be able to obtain our food and other essential supplies. This decision by Sainsburys, to sack them at a time of sharply increasing unemployment is a slap in the face when they should instead be receiving a reward for our gratitude.

The people of Stockport, and especially the residents of our town centre will lose a much valued store and a depletion of choice in buying their goods.

Sainsbury PLC declared a pre-tax profit of £586 million in its 2020 Annual Report (see link below).

We call on Simon Roberts, CEO of Sainsbury PLC to withdraw the decision to sack these workers and close Stockport's town centre store.
