Asda to open 21 convenience stores by the end of January

Asda will have added 21 new convenience stores to its estate by the end January as it continues to convert the shops acquired from the Co-op and EG Group to its new Asda Express convenience brand.

These will follow the 17 stores already opened this month in locations such as Southampton, Cardiff and Clapham.

The newly converted Asda Express stores stock up to 3,000 branded and own-label products including essential items such as milk, bread, food-to-go and items for cooking dinner from scratch.

Andy Perry, Asda’s vice president of convenience, said: “After pausing our convenience rollout during the festive period, the programme is now in full swing once more.

“We have exciting plans to accelerate the programme over the next couple of months with the aim of converting all 470 stores acquired from the Co-op and EG Group to Asda Express before the end of Q1.”

Addressing Asda’s gap in the growing convenience market has been a key pillar of the retailer’s strategy since its acquisition by the Issa brothers and TDR Capital Ltd completed in 2021.
