Asda bosses say the 5,000 sq ft Asda On the Move store, in EG Group’s London Road petrol station, in Retford, is the largest one to open to date.

It offers more than 2,500 Asda own brand and branded items, including Extra Special, fresh and chilled products, alongside EG-operated food service brands LEON and KFC.

Following a successful trial in four Asda On the Move stores, shoppers can also access the grocer’s full online range for Click & Collect, as well as collection and returns on parcels.

A new Asda On the Move store has opened in London Road, Retford.

The Retford site will also have two electric vehicle charging points.

EG Group-owned Cooplands, the bakery chain, will open a café inside the store, offering hot food-to-go options, in April.
