Diggers moved in on land off Thorne Road in Wheatley last October to create the new unit, which has already seen a 24 hour petrol station given Asda branding.
Opposite Sandall Park, the new filling station and retail store will be on land in front of the former Miller Brothers electricial showroom – now a gym – and opposite the McDonalds’ drive-thru restaurant at the entrance to Shaw Lane industrial estate.
Plans were submitted last year by UK retailer EG Group, which has been working in conjuction with Asda to open the firm’s ‘On The Move’ branches across the country, with 100 already open and 100 more to follow.
Stocking up to 2,500 products, the stores also feature franchise partner offers such as Starbucks, KFC, Burger King, Greggs, Subway, Sbarro, and Cinnabon.
The Asda on the Move concept was launched in October 2020.
