Breaking news attack - Asda take over Netto

27 May 2010

netto Asda... or Wal-Mart... or whatever you want to call them, have said today that they're about to take over the UK wing of discount supermarket Netto.

This move will add another 193 stores to the already sprawling mass of Asdas.

The Wal-Mart group have agreed a £778 million deal to buy the stores, which will see the Netto stores converted to the Asda brand by the summer of 2011. That means the weird tailless Scotty dog thing will be put down that adorns the Netto stores.

The group said it hopes to complete the takeover later this summer, subject to regulatory approval.

Will Asda's prices be as low as Netto's? Probably not. Time to start stocking up on tiny beers and tinned cabbages or whatever it is they sell.

    Will they stop Netto from stinking of piss? That would be my first move if I took them over.

    "That means the weird tailless Scotty dog thing will be put down that adorns the Netto stores." would have read better as: "That means the weird tailless Scotty dog thing that adorns the Netto stores will be put down."

    When I was at school you got beaten up if you had your lunch in a Netto's carrier bag. Worse still repeat offenders faced the dreaded 'Love tree' (forcibly being held aloft, spread-eagled whilst surging forward crotch first into the trunk, whilst the said executioners gleefully chant 'love tree!') ahhh the good ol' days...
  • Atheos, A.
    @Sideysid: The consolation is that the gormless knuckle-draggers who did that aer probably working in Netto stacking shelves right now.

  • DAVIE
    ASDA, you better keep my J20s at the same bloody price!!! Netto are the only store that has them at a bargain price!
  • beckiie
    iceland am cheaper then netto ,, glad the netto by me is an asda
  • jrt
    I reckon that a lot of these negative posts must have been left by employees of competitors shops - probably the very expensive ones like asda tesco sainsburys waitrose. netto was excellent value , most of the products good quality - miles better than the value ranges of the big supermarkets , it will be a sad loss for choice , and my pocket . now only got lidl and the dearer aldi to use to avoid being charged over the odds have used netto for 20 years and it will be greatly missed
