The Morden Town Centre Partnership will welcome Sainsbury’s to Morden when it opens on Thursday 8 December at 9am.
The supermarket has expressed interest in joining the Partnership, which already includes Merton Council, London Underground Ltd, the police, community groups and businesses in the town centre.
The Partnership was established to help secure a vibrant and prosperous centre serving the needs and aspirations of Morden residents, businesses and users.
Councillor Andrew Judge, Leader of Merton Council, said:
‘I am very pleased that Sainsbury’s has decided to locate in Morden. It demonstrates real confidence in Morden as a shopping centre, will improve the variety of offerings to local residents and will provide a strong building block for the future.’
