Supermarket giant Asda will be spending £500,000 converting the former Netto in Chorley into their first store in the town.

The former Netto store on Water Street will close on Saturday September 3 and be transformed into a new-look Asda.

It’s expected the building will re-open two weeks later on Monday September 19.

It will stock more than 10,000 grocery products, around four times the number of products previously sold at Netto.

The supermarket giants already have a store at Clayton Brook and have planning permission to build a superstore on the site of QS Fashions.

All the existing workers at Netto will be transferred over to the new Asda and undergo a week -long training programme.

The store will also create eight new jobs. Anyone wishing to apply for these roles should visit

Amanda Fleming, area manager for Asda, said: “Despite being a small Asda supermarket we think customers are going to be delighted with the new store.”

The new supermarket will also boast PayPoint, lottery and cash machines.
