Sainsbury's is to open a convenience store in Great Suffolk Street ... directly opposite Tesco Express.
The supermarket chain has submitted planning applications to install a new shopfront and cash machines on the ground floor of 18 Great Suffolk Street, opposite Premier Inn and Tesco Express.
The retail unit will be subdivided to accommodate a new Costa Coffee outlet.
The planned new branch of Sainsbury's Local in Great Suffolk Street is less than 500 metres from the existing store in The Cut and less than 450 metres from the proposed shop at Friars House in Blackfriars Road.
