Sainsbury’s puts groceries back in grocery-free store

Sainsbury's was hoping that not stocking groceries would make grocery shopping a whole lot easier

Sainsbury’s was hoping that not stocking groceries would make grocery shopping a whole lot easier

Three months ago, supermarket chain Sainsbury’s opened a grocery-free store. The experiment aimed to combine self-service with the inability to pinch anything.

A spokesperson said: “With all the concern over climate change and everyone being told to eat less, we thought a grocery-free store would be very popular.

“Customers can still come in to enjoy the unique Sainsbury’s ambience and know they are doing their part in saving the planet by not buying any groceries.

“We left all the labels so customers could still walk up and down the aisles like they used to.

“Some customers got it straight away but a lot of customers were walking up and down the empty shelves asking staff where the bread or vegetable aisles were.

Some customers even thought people had been panic-buying ahead of Brexit. As if.

“So, unfortunately, we had to cancel the project and put groceries back in the store again.

“However, we did learn a lot about our customers, their shopping habits, preferences, likes and dislikes so it was a very valuable experiment.

“Mainly we learned that when customers go into a grocery store they want to buy groceries.

“You can’t please everyone.”
