Exclusive: B&Q severs Asda partnership to focus on smaller-format stores

B&Q ASDA Dagenham 02

B&Q has decided to end its partnership with Asda and close eight concessions around the country to instead focus on rolling out smaller-format, high street fascias.

Retail Week can reveal that the DIY specialist will close the eight concessions in Asda superstores from March 11, with 57 staff set to be affected by the closures. B&Q and Asda launched their concessions partnership in 2020 with four shop-in-shops.

B&Q said it all affected staff would be offered alternative employment at nearby stores.
