Asda is set to close its discount small store format Asda Essentials in Northampton.

The 8,000 sq ft store, which opened in March last year, will close by the end of the month, according to reports in the Daily Telegraph.

“While the colleagues in the store have given it 100%, the Northampton Essentials store performance hasn't been meeting our high expectations,” an Asda spokesman told the paper.
