Asda to open third Express convenience store this month

Asda will unveil its third Express convenience store this month, as it looks to open 300 sites by the end of 2026.

The store is set to open its doors on Tuesday 23 May, and will create 15 new jobs.

Located in Calne, Wiltshire, the new format will stock more than 3,000 products, including a range of fresh, ambient and chilled groceries, as well as products from Asda’s premium Extra Special range including beers, wines and spirits.

It will also offer a variety of services to customers including parcel collection and returns, lottery and parking.

Growing its convenience arm is a key part of Asda’s strategy to become the UK’s second-largest supermarket.

The big 4 grocer opened its first standalone ‘Asda Express’ convenience store in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, and the second store in London late last year.

The new Asda Express stores are operated by Asda.

They are separate from the Asda On the Move convenience sites, which are located on garage forecourts and run by EG Group.

Asda senior director of wholesale and convenience James Laws 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.”
