Sheffield Asda store to revamp click and collect service to meet quadrupled demand

A Sheffield Asda store is planning to revamp its Click and Collect service to help meet quadrupled demand.

Friday, 26th February 2021, 8:50 am

Plans were submitted to Sheffield Council to replace the current Click and Collect facility at Asda, on Market Street, Chapeltown, in the centre of the car park with a brand new drive-thru site.

Customers who have placed shopping orders online are required to pull into the Click and Collect point to collect their shopping. Customers alert colleagues to their arrival, using the mobile app, who then bring their groceries out to the car.

If approved by the council, work will involve improving the access to that part of the car park including new hatched islands to diver the road that passes adjacent to the store.

The existing grocery collection will be removed, and the area is to be reinstated with parking spaces.

In a statement with the plans, Asda said their Click and Collect service had quadrupled in the past six months and the requirement for the expansion of their drive-thru operations was clear.

The project is part of a wider Feeding the Nation programme that includes a number of measures it is taking to meet demand during Covid-19.

C+A Design, acting as agent on behalf of Asda, added: “The operation is considerate to the site’s neighbours, environment, customers and colleagues alike. The operation will have minimal impact on the existing Asda site operations or neighbouring uses. The scheme should therefore be consented.”

So far there are no comments from members of the public.
