Sainsbury's cafe in Chesterfield facing closure threat

Sainsbury’s has announced plans to close 200 of its in-store cafes – with Chesterfield’s under threat.

Wednesday, 2nd March 2022, 1:00 pm

The supermarket giant told staff it was looking to shut most of the cafes in its stores next month – putting around 2,000 jobs at risk.

It said 67 Sainsbury’s cafes would stay open while it reviewed the estate, and staff will be prioritised for vacancies in other parts of the firm.

Sainsbury's is shutting 200 in-store cafes.

The closures are part of a wider shake-up within the stores, with Sainsbury's set to bring in more Starbucks cafes and food halls.

Simon Roberts, chief executive of Sainsbury’s, said: "We have learnt that we can offer customers a much better eat-in and takeaway experience working with partners.”
