SAINSBURY’S will launch a pop up click and collect car park service in Bishop’s Waltham while the local store is closed.

The shop in Winchester Road will be closed for refurbishment from Sunday, September 13.

Residents will be able to order products to the 'Neighbourhood Hub' online from September 9.

A spokesperson said: "This service will be a convenient way for customers to shop during the closure period. Customers will be able to browse and purchase their items from the comfort of their homes and can conveniently pick up their order during a time slot of their choice from the store car park.

"The click and collect slots will be subject to availability and customers can book a maximum of one slot per week. Next day delivery will be available for orders made before 11pm and the service is free for orders over £40.

"A cost of £4 will be added to the orders below £40. In addition to the new local click and collect, residents will also be able to use Sainsbury’s Groceries Online service or Sainsbury’s Assisted Shopping scheme in order to get what they need while temporarily unable to visit the local store."

Residents have the option to order groceries online for delivery direct to their homes, with a variety of delivery options including time slots available.

Sainsbury's Assisted Shopping scheme is there to also support people who are housebound or unable to online shop by allowing them to complete their shopping over the phone.

Patrick Dunne, Sainsbury’s property director said: "We’ve been pleased by the warm welcome from local people since we announced our plans to open a new Neighbourhood Hub store in Bishop’s Waltham.

"We’re committed to minimising disruption to residents and customers as we embark on this exciting upgrade and thank everyone for their understanding as we refurbish the store."
