Customers who shop at the store are being told they can shop in Bagshot instead.

A Sainsbury's spokesman said: "We have spoken to our colleagues to let them know that sadly our Bracknell store will close in February.

"We understand that this will be a very unsettling time for colleagues and we are doing everything we can to help them find alternative roles at nearby Sainsbury’s stores. "Customers can continue to shop with us at our nearby Bagshot superstore, which is only a six minute drive from the Bracknell store.”
