Former Asda boss Andy Bond has added online grocery retailer Farmison.com to his burgeoning investment portfolio.
Darren Blackhurst is set to return to front-line retailing after being lined up as the next chief executive of Matalan.

Andy Bond has stepped down as Asda chairman to focus on Walmart’s acquisition of Massmart in South Africa and will cut his ties with the business completely by the end of March.
