Sainsbury opened its second picking centre to fulfil internet orders from Sainsburystoyou in Manchester this week. The 65,000 sq ft warehouse can process up to 5,000 orders a week, said a spokesman. The site employs 110 staff and there are plans to recruit a further 300. "We're always looking at new sites, particularly in larger cities such as Birmingham," he added. "But we will achieve our aim of 60% coverage of UK households using our existing centres [London and Manchester], and by additional picking from stores without building another site." Sainsburystoyou is currently available to 45% of UK households. {{NEWS }}
