Supermarket set for £500,000 refit

Have your say

ASDA is to start a half-million-pound refit of its Conisbrough store at the end of the month.

The shop is one of a number of former Netto stores which have been taken over by the company, owned by US giant Walmart.

The store will be one of the first in the UK to convert from a Netto into a new Asda.

The site on Hill Top Road will close on Saturday, May 28 and be transformed into a new-look Asda, and expects to re-open two weeks later on Wednesday, June 15.

Staff are being transferred over to the new Asda, and the change will also create 22 new jobs.

Alan Bush, manager at Asda Conisbrough, said: “Despite being a small supermarket we think customers are going to be delighted with the new store.

“We hope they will be bowled over by the range and there will be no price premium for anything we sell.”

The new Asda is one of 147 former Netto stores which were taken over by the company.

When it re-opens next month, the Conisbrough store will be open from 8am until 8pm Monday to Saturday and 10am until 4pm on Sunday.
