A supermarket giant is opening a new store in Fareham as part of an expansion drive.

Asda is scheduled to open the doors of its new convenience store in Highland Road, Fareham, today. This is part of plans to add a total of 20 other small outlets to the company's portfolio. Andy Perry, Asda’s vice president of convenience, said work is underway to convert many of the new locations acquired from the Co-op and EG Group - which will be turned into Asda Express.

"After pausing our convenience rollout during the festive period, the programme is now in full swing once more," he added. "We have exciting plans to accelerate the programme over the next couple of months with the aim of converting all 470 stores acquired from the Co-op and EG Group to Asda Express before the end of Q1. We are looking forward to opening our doors and welcoming customers in new locations right across the UK.”

Since the company was bought billionaire brothers Mohsin Issa CBE and Zuber Issa CBE and TDR Capital Ltd in 2021, the company has been looking to branch out by opening smaller shops. Its new Asda Express brand will become a new fixture on many high streets, with 21 new stores opening by the end of the month after 17 were previously opened.

Up to 3,000 branded and own-label products will be stocked on the shelves, from a range of everyday essentials to whole foods.
