There's a reference to a Sainsbury's Local opening in Borough High Street in "early summer" on a related story on this site about a new Sainsbury's Local opening soon near to Waterloo.

Is this true?!!? Is Sainsbury's coming to Borough High Street?! Does this mean no more trips to Costcutter?!

Wanted to know if there really is a Sainsbury's local opening in Borough high street or just the one in Waterloo road.

can anyone advise?

As these two posts asked the same question, I have merged the thread.

I think SE1 is too posh a post-code to warrant a "kwik save", though admittedly there are quite a few Costcutters/cornershops which serve a similar purpose in the area.

Costcutter and Kwik-Save prices are hardly comparable though!

Dear Nick

Once Sainsbury Local turms up you will then have to look forward to something else - any idea, yet, whatit might be ?

( although I'm sure you'll let us all know)

At first, I thought I would not respond to your petty email.

However, on further reflection, it concerns me that you seem genuinely ignorant to the significance and importance of having a major league supermarket open in the area.

How can you ignore the benefits of the new investment in the locality; the jobs it will bring; and the message of confidence that is sent out about the area to other potential developers/ residents?

Walking up Borough High St this morning I noticed some placards stating "Sainsburys Local Coming Soon". It seems that the news item/rumour was correct.

I vowed I would never post anything about Supermarkets on this website ever again. But having just proved to the world that I am sad enough to spend my life pondering the difference between grey cameras and black cameras on the New Kent Road (see other posting), I thought I might as well be in for a penny, in for a pound.

If you want real supermarket bargains in SE1, check out either the liquor selection or the whole-walnut icecream in Lidyl Supermarket (Old Kent Road). You can make the best cocktails in the world, for a mere 1.99, and that includes the whole-walnut icecream, bottles of liquor and mixers. The whole-walnut icecream is, for my money, better than anything from Ben and Jerrys.

Admittedly, some of the stock is truly hideous, but my weekly shopping bill rarely fails to give me change for a tenner.

God, I really am very very sad indeed.
