A New Supermarket

Today's view of the world of Ashton under Lyne shows the newest supermarket to open in Ashton.

This is a mini-Asda store that has opened a week ago on Queens Road, Hurst Cross. The building was originally a Co-op supermarket and I showed this picture of it in 2008.

The Co-op kept it's "Late Shop" open round the corner on Kings Road, which may have reduced the profitability of the store on Queens Road. The store was bought by Netto just before Asda took over all of Netto's UK stores, which is why it has now become an Asda, even though Asda have a large superstore on Cavendish Street.

When I took this photo last week the car park was pretty full suggesting that the new store is attracting a lot of interest. I have a feeling the Co-op may regret having sold the shop, as the Late Shop seemed pretty quiet that day.

  1. Always good to see a new super market! Unfortunately, a new one doesn't mean lower prices! Great shot for the day!


  2. I'm not sure I agree with Sylvia. Newer doesn't always mean better.
    Always interesting, however, to hear about your part of the world.

  3. I agree. Newer doesn't mean better in the world of supermarkets:( Great photography!
