Goodbye Netto, hello Asda

MORECAMBE’S Netto has now closed and will reopen as Asda on Tuesday, September 20.

The discount store on Lancaster Road ended its closing down sale last Saturday and now staff have gone into a week-long training programme ready for the £500,000 conversion to an Asda supermarket.

The store will also create 16 new jobs. Anyone wishing to apply for these roles should visit www.asda.com/jobs.

Sixty-four Netto stores nationwide have been converted to Asdas since May 2011.

The new Asda supermarket in Morecambe will be open from 8am to 8pm from Monday to Saturday and from 10am to 4pm on Sunday.
