As part of its huge expansion it will also open a standalone store in Birmingham.

The supermarket giant has already opened 13 of the 110 shops this month, with another 12 set to open their doors tomorrow.

These openings mean that Asda will have opened 1,000 UK stores - a milestone.

Asda, previously owned by Walmart, plans to convert a total of 470 Co-op and EG Groups sites into Express stores before the end of March.

It purchased 132 fuel forecourts and convenience stores from Co-op and EG in August 2022 for £438 million. The acquisition was approved in June 2023 after Asda agreed to sell 13 sites to meet competition requirements.

The supermarket had converted 259 locations by the end of January.

Andy Perry, Asda's Vice President of Convenience, said: "Asda’s significant investment in building a nationwide chain of convenience stores is a key component of our long-term strategy to become the number two player in UK grocery.

"February is a transformational month for the programme with a record number of store openings and conversion of all former Co-op sites to Asda Express sites.

Asda Express stores will offer a wide range of products, including both branded and own-label products.

Asda Express stores will offer a wide range of products, including both branded and own-label products.

The retailer added that stores will cater to various customer needs, such as quick essential shopping for items like bread and milk, lunch on the go, or preparing dinner from scratch.

Many new stores are set to open in February, located in different parts of the UK, from the Isle of Skye in the Hebrides to Plymouth in Devon and Ipswich in Suffolk.

Several of these stores will be located in southern England, an area where Asda has traditionally had less presence.
