New Asda on the Move stores to open across the UK with Subway and Greggs

Asda has announced it has plans to expand its convenience stores into petrol stations.

There will be 28 Asda on the Move sites opening this year and a further 200 will follow in 2022.

The stores will be opened on sites owned by brothers Mohsin and Zuber Issa, who bought the supermarket from US retailer Walmart via their EG Group a year ago for £6.8 billion.

A wholesale agreement between the supermarket and the petrol forecourt business will be signed and bosses hope to open more in future years.

Each site will stock 2,500 products and will partner with Greggs and Subway, the company said.

Mohsin and Zuber Issa said: “The Asda business has proved incredibly resilient in 2021 as customers continue to eat more at home and enjoy food which is both fantastic quality and great value.

“Our plans to rollout Asda On the Move will bring Asda to new customers, enabling them to pick up food-to-go, essentials for an evening meal, or treat themselves to premium Extra Special products from a range of convenient locations.

“We continue to see significant opportunities to drive innovation across the business and we look forward to working with the Asda team to execute our growth strategy.”
