Our customers in London found it a bit of a struggle to get their fresh shopping whilst commuting in the Big Smoke, so last November we were the first supermarket to provide Click & Collect services at London underground stations.
The service has been very popular with busy commuters and people living locally – customers living close to the stations use the service in the same way as they would a local supermarket.
And we’re extending the successful partnership with Transport for London (TfL) to offer Grocery Click and Collect services at six more London Underground station car parks. There will be twelve Click & Collect points in total by the end of the month – including Blackhorse Road, Hainault, Queensbury, Canon’s Park, Fairlop and Hornchurch.
Graeme Craig, Director of Commercial Development at TfL, said: “Our trial with Asda has been very successful and we’re delighted that they are expanding their services to more stations, making it easier for commuters to pick up their shopping on their way home. All the revenue generated from our partnership with Asda, and other retailers, will be reinvested back into our network to improve services for our customers.”
