Sainsbury’s has decided not to open a convenience store in the former Barclays Bank on Wanstead High Street.
The company told Wansteadium: “We remain very interested in opening a new shop in Wanstead.
“However following a review we have decided not to progress our plans for a new convenience store at the former Barclays Bank. Clearly this was not an easy decision to make and we’re grateful for people’s patience and support.
“We will now be marketing the site to interested parties so we bring the building back into use as quickly as possible.”
