Asda branches out with £1m stores

ASDA is opening two more stores in Sheffield at a cost of £1m.

Former Netto stores in Catchbar Lane, Hillsborough, and in Queens Road will close on July 30 and reopen on August 15 and 16, respectively, as Asdas.

Existing staff will be transferred and 13 extra posts will be created at Catchbar Lane, plus 23 new jobs at Queens Road.

An Asda spokesman said: “Despite being small supermarkets, we think customers are going to be delighted with the new stores.”
