A Preston supermarket is to cut its opening hours during the next eight weeks for a major refit.Advertisement
Costing £1.7million the Asda in Fulwood is seeing an extensive refurbishment of its meat, fish and pizza counters – as well as a new layout for the George and fashion departments.
An expanded Scan and Go technology set of tills is also being introduced – aimed at reducing queuing times.
Work has already begun with the deli and pizza tills all boarded off while workmen start the refurb.
Asda is scaling back its 24-hour operation at the Pittman Way store during the work, with reduced hours Monday to Thursday.
Fulwood store manager Martyn Stainton said: “It is great that we have the opportunity to improve the store so our customers can have the best possible shopping experience with us.
“We can’t wait for everyone to see our newly designed George Fashion and Home departments along with our different counters around the store. In addition to services we already offer, we are pleased that we will be launching our new Scan and Go checkout technology for an easier way to shop.
“I would like to thank our customers for their patience whilst the enhancements take place, feel free to contact the store if you have any questions. I hope that everyone enjoys the improvements being made to the store over the coming weeks.”
