Net a new job

TWO supermarkets at Parkgate and Wath will change hands from Netto to Asda by the end of this year.

These will be among 147 Netto stores in the UK to be converted to Asda Supermarkets.

New jobs are promised as Asda plans to increase their workforce at each store, following the £778m deal that was announced in May last year.

Judith McKenna, Asda’s chief financial officer, said: “We’re delighted that we’re one step closer to completing our acquisition of the Netto stores, which will allow us to provide even more space, choice and savings to our millions of customers in the UK.”
