We are very proud to announce the launch of the first ever ‘ASDA Express’ convenience store in Sutton Coldfield, 8 miles Northeast of Birmingham.
CBES were engaged as main contractor on the six week project to deliver this landmark new store for ASDA based upon our extensive experience in delivering similar schemes for our other clients. In addition to managing the construction and fitting out the store, CBES were also responsible for installing a full refrigeration package and all electrical works.
The new store format brings ASDA into the very heart of local communities, each store will feature 3,000+ products, specially selected from ASDA's main & 'Extra Special' ranges.
As well as providing a wide range of chilled & ambient groceries, wines, spirts & beers, the new stores will provide 'food for now' & 'food for later' options, hot drinks, meal deals, parcel delivery and collection services and a rapid home delivery service via ASDA partner Uber Eats.
ASDA plans to rollout an additional 30 ‘ASDA Express’ stores throughout 2023 creating over 500 new jobs for local people and plan to use an iterative approach to development to fine tune and refine the format and ranges in the new stores for optimum customer satisfaction. CBES have already been engaged to complete a second new ‘ASDA Express’ store at Tottenham in North London which is due to open before Christmas.
Mohsin Issa, Asda’s co-owner, said: “The launch of our first two ‘Asda Express’ convenience stores is a landmark moment for our great business and a key step on our journey to bring Asda to more customers in more communities right across the UK.
“The stores have been designed to cater for a broad range of customer needs – 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. We’re confident customers will find everything they need in these stores and enjoy the convenience of having a new type of Asda store on their doorstep.
As a trusted partner providing construction, maintenance, refrigeration and fire & security services, CBES have had a longstanding 25 year relationship with ASDA and are delighted to be spearheading this exciting new development for the retailer.
