Sainsbury's To Sell St Martin's Walk Shopping Centre
Apr 25 14
Sainsbury’s Supermarkets Ltd. has announced its intention to sell the St Martin’s Walk shopping centre in Dorking. A Sainsbury’s spokesman said, "Now that it is clear there is no longer any scope for a new Sainsbury’s supermarket on the site at the rear of St Martin’s Walk, we believe it is in the best interests of all concerned that a new owner is found for the shopping centre. We are therefore due to start actively marketing our leasehold interest in the shopping centre."
Sainsbury's Launches Butter-Side-Up Bread
Apr 10 14
Sainsbury's has announced the launch of its new butter-side-up bread. The butter-side-up bread is baked in higher temperatures allowing for a more rapid expansion of the dough. This process helps create larger air pockets in the loaf, which in turn absorbs your butter and jam more evenly. This absorption helps distribute the weight of condiments in a balanced way and negate any disproportionate weight bias. It also reduces the uneven drag in mid flight. The new bread slicing method leaves loaves with an ever-so-slight curvature, almost unidentifiable to the naked eye. This curve adds a greater weight to the unbuttered side of your toast resulting in a butter-side-up reaction 99% of the time. To further prevent this age-old conundrum, the company created 1ft and 8ft tall breakfast tables. Toast falling from shorter tables has not the time nor space to rotate before impact. The taller 8ft tables allow for a full 360 degree rotation, meaning toast will land butter-side-up almost every time.
