J Sainsbury History

J Sainsbury, better known today as Sainsbury’s, was founded in 1869 by John James Sainsbury and his wife Mary Ann Sainsbury in Drury Lane, London. Since its inception, it has grown to become one of the biggest supermarket retailers in the UK. Sainsbury’s has been selling its own brand products since 1882 – anything from bread to beans – and even branched out with its own-label Scotch whisky.
