Asda is to test a new convenience store format and launch B&Q shop-in-shops inside four of its largest superstores.
The supermarket giant is piloting the new Asda On The Move c-store fascia on three petrol station forecourts in the Midlands, as part of a tie-up with EG Group.
The trial shops will open in Ashby, Leamore and Primley.
Asda has opened smaller-format stores in city locations in the past, but this represents its first concerted push into the convenience food sector.
