An application for planning permission to change signage at Sainsbury's in Jackson Square has been submitted to East Herts Council in advance of the opening of an Argos concession in the store.

The supermarket chain bought Home Retail Group – which owns Argos and Habitat – in a £1.4bn deal in September 2016.

Since then it has been consolidating its portfolio of more than 2,000 outlets – 601 supermarkets, 773 convenience stores, 739 Argos shops and three Habitats. As a result, it is to close its Argos shop in the precinct and move the operation and staff into the main premises.

The Independent understands the concession will open on May 5.

On Monday evening, members of Bishop’s Stortford Town Council’s planning and development committee were invited to comment on the replacement of existing signs to reflect the change in branding and raised no objection.
