CO-OP GARAGE SET TO BECOME ASDA EXPRESS NEXT WEEK

A POPULAR Washington fuel stop is gearing up for its long-awaited changeover next week.

The Co-op petrol station at Parson’s Road, Albany, will close on Monday, October 30 and re-open on Wednesday, November 1 as Asda Express.

Last year, Asda revealed it had acquired 132 sites from Co-op and work began over the summer at sites across the country.

From next week, the site will feature new Asda Express signage like this…

Following the first conversions, the Washington site – still affectionately known to much of the town as ‘Kenneth Martin’s’  is now next on the list.

For the last few weeks, the shop has been slowly emptying its shelves in readiness for the takeover, although fuel and other essentials are still available as ever.

Next Monday, it will close ahead of a day of conversion work and is set to re-open on Wednesday under the new Asda Express banner – with all current staff remaining at the helm.

Once completed, the shop is set to stock thousands of branded and own-label products and will continue to sell essentials such as bread, milk and food on the go.

 “We’re incredibly excited to be bringing our Asda value and quality to the community with the conversion of the Parsons Road Co-op site,” said Andy Perry, VP of Convenience at Asda.

“The roll out marks an incredibly exciting moment for our business and accelerates our presence in the fast-growing convenience market.”

The Parsons Road Co-op remains open as usual until Monday, October 30.
