Sainsbury's continues to develop its digital and cross-channel strategy, and recently announced plans for an expansion of its Click and Collect service to more than 800 stores by December – a service that enables customers to buy online or via kiosks in store and have products delivered to a nearby shop.

The use of the Sainsbury's app on the iPhone, Nokia and Android continues to grow, having already been downloaded more than 250,000 times.

Sainsbury's has more than 120,000 online grocery orders each week and over 15,000 products are available on its non-foods website.
