ASDA has been based at Portrack Lane, Stockton-on-Tees for decades. The current store, has been purposely built a couple of years ago, and is regarded as an “Asda Superstore”.
Facilities at ASDA Stockton include free Car Parking, Cash Machines, Customer WC, Cafe and Recycling.
ASDA now has over 525 stores across the UK and has been part of the Wal-Mart family since 1999. The company employs 160,000 colleagues and they have a well-deserved reputation for being the best and the friendliest in the industry.
All of the shops are Stores of the Community as they play a positive part in all aspects of life in their local community from establishing a new local supplier to working with the emergency services in the area. Last year ASDA colleagues raised £1.2 million for charities. It’s no coincidence, either, that ASDAs reputation for friendly service is as inextricably linked to the ASDA brand as their reputation for quality and service.
ASDA can trace their roots back to a group of Yorkshire farmers, who formed Hindell’s Dairies in the 1920s, processing and retailing milk and meat to a growing customer base. The company was extremely successful and continued to expand and diversify, acquiring more processing dairies, abattoirs, bakeries, shops, four managed farms and 22 rented farms.
Stores continued to open throughout the 1970s with great success. The 1970s were also acquisition years – the group bought Allied Retailers and some Gateway stores.
Times got harder during the 1980s – the group had spread too thinly across retail and the share price started to plummet. Recovery came with the appointment of Archie Norman and Allan Leighton who in 1991 laid down an ambitious formula for renewal and growth.
The formula concentrated on restoring value at the heart of the ASDA brand and revolutionising internal communications and motivation.
In June 1999, now a successful company once more, ASDA was acquired by Wal-Mart Stores Inc., and became part of the world’s biggest and best retailer.Since then, ASDA has become Britain’s second largest supermarket. Our commitments to value, quality, colleagues and putting customers first remain the engine that drives their business, and with the backing of Wal*Mart they plan to continue delivering for customers.
