Asda has announced plans to open a convenience store in Calne later this month, bringing Asda value and great products to the local area.
Set to open its doors for the first time on Tuesday 23rd May, the new store will be the retailer’s third ‘Asda Express’ format and has created 15 new jobs in the community.
The store will be located just outside of the town centre on London Road and the exciting new format will offer customers over 3,000 products including a comprehensive range of fresh, ambient and chilled groceries, as well as products from Asda’s premium Extra Special range and a broad selection of beers, wines and spirits.
It will also offer a variety of services to customers including parcel collection and returns, lottery and ample parking making the store easily accessible for customers. The store will be open from 6am – 11pm, Monday – Sunday.
The roll out of Asda Express is part of Asda’s long-term strategy to become the UK’s second largest supermarket by establishing a presence in the fast-growing convenience sector. Asda plans to launch a further 300 Express stores by the end of 2026.
Commenting on the opening, James Laws, Senior Director of Wholesale and Convenience at Asda said:
“We’re excited to be bringing our new convenience offering to Calne and we’re confident the store will offer customers everything they need - whether that’s popping in for a pint of milk, grabbing a spot of lunch on the go, or buying the fresh ingredients to cook dinner from scratch.
“We’re also delighted to be welcoming 15 new colleagues to the Asda family and thank them for their hard work so far in bringing our convenience vision to life.”
The new Asda Express stores are wholly owned and operated by Asda. They are separate from the Asda On the Move convenience sites, which are located on garage forecourts owned and operated by EG Group.
