Sainsbury’s search goes on


Rumours were circulating this week that Sainsbury’s had secured a buyer for its Lower School site in Rye, Tony Nunn writes. One source claimed it was another supermarket. But a spokesman for Sainsbury’s made the following statement: “We fully recognise that many people in Rye would like another supermarket in the town. As such, we are approaching alternative food retailers in the first instance and will only consider other alternatives if there is no interest from other food retailers in the site.”
