Asda have announced that they are planning 300 new convenience stores over the next four years creating 10,000 new jobs.
Asda said they are planning to open Asda Express shops next year in Wiltshire, Essex and Surrey as part of their growth strategy.
Mohsin Issa, Asda’s co-owner said, “A key part of our growth strategy is to provide customers with more opportunities to shop at Asda closer to where they live or work.
“With more than three quarters of the UK population visiting a convenience store in the last 12 months, the potential for growth in this market is significant.
“Our ambition is to become the convenience destination of choice by providing shoppers great value and a comprehensive and convenient range of products and services under one roof.”
