It’s got a barbers, a themed waiting-service cafe and a parcel tower – but the newly-reopened and refurbished Asda store in Bristol has something very 2018 – a sushi counter.
For customers at the Patchway store will be the first in the country who can walk into Asda, saunter up to the sushi counter and choose just what kind of sushi they want freshly made for their lunch or dinner.
To mark the occasion, Asda has even gone to the lengths of creating a special 360-degree virtual tour of the store’s new facilities, with the sushi bar at its heart.
The store on the northern edge of Bristol was refurbished over a three month period, and now includes Asda’s first ever click and collect ‘tower’, a pod into which people step to collect pre-ordered goods that arrive within 12 seconds via a special tube.
It’s the second Asda store in the country with one of those, but the first with a barbers and a themed cafe with waited-on tables.
Matt Dodd, store manager at Asda Patchway, said: “It’s great to finally see the completion of the stores major refurbishment programme and having members of the local community join us to celebrate.
“There’s been a lot of hard work behind the scenes to get everything ready and I’d like to thank everybody for their contribution, it was brilliant to see such a buzz around the store’s completion.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming customers old and new to see the new look Asda Patchway,” he added.
