The Sainsbury’s Story
John and his wife Mary Ann sold milk, butter and eggs from 1869. With tiled walls and marble tops for hygiene, they stocked “the best butter in London”. “Quality Perfect, Prices Lower” was their motto. John died in 1928 with 200 stores. In 1962 grandson Alan became Lord Sainsbury of Drury Lane! Firsts included own-brands in 1882, self-service 1950s, bakeries 1970s, recycled bags 1989, Fairtrade 1994 and no battery eggs 2009.
