Asda, Coronation Street
The new Asda supermarket (part of the Walmart Corporation) in South Shields, opened it’s doors a week ago. The building is built on “stilts” with much of it’s car park below and is accessed either by lifts, stairs, or moving travelators, designed to accommodate a much greater range of produce as well as a large ‘George’ clothing department, and cafe, the supermarket is already proving popular. This facade is almost 100% glass, providing ample ambient light for the building and allowing shoppers and staff to get a good idea of what time of day it is, the store trades 24 hours!
It is situated in Coronation street opposite St. Hilda’s church.
