Sainsbury’s food store staff shadowed by MP

Bristol South MP Karin Smyth shadowed food counter staff at Sainsbury’s Winterstoke Road store in Ashton.

The Labour MP worked alongside retail workers, talking with a number of her constituents at the fish and other food counters as they shopped in their local supermarket.

Karin Smyth MP said: “Sainsbury’s Winterstoke Road store is an important local employer, and it was good to meet a number of long-standing employees, all of whom live locally. Many had started working in the store when they had young children and are still there some 25 years on.

“I was shown how to fillet a fish for sale and learned a great deal about a wide range of local cheeses available in store.”
