The new Asda in Crawley, West Sussex - to open in August - is appealing for businesses in the area to come forward with local products that they think shoppers want to be sold at the store.

Store manager John Ponsford said: "Stocking products supplied by local people for local people is
part of our continued commitment to supporting our community.

"If you've got a local product that people just can't get enough of then we'd love to hear from you."

Potential local suppliers need to fulfil four criteria to be considered and there is no limit on company size.

Interested businesses need to contact Ponsford at the Asda recruitment centre, with their product details and samples.
