Just thought you should know that ASDA are closing all our local Netto's down and converting them to mini ASDA's..The one in Bidston has already started winding down.

I know that they get a bad press, but for the last few years they were discounting top branded name stuff and not the poor rubbish they sold when they first opened.

The prices will all go up now... there goes the case deals on my beloved Carlsberg Lager...

Argh - I rather like the brash and cheap/ cheerful Netto shops. I especially remember the one in Liscard some years ago. All the boxes for the "offers" were a complete mess, but it was great fun hunting though to see what knick-knacks I could find

I was chatting to a member of staff in the Seacombe Netto and according to her that particular branch won't be changing to an Asda. She said it'll just close eventually. It's a shame, I love my Netto bargains.

Very old News... Asda acquired Netto 18 months ago for anyone interested. The Birkenhead branch is sure to close and the workers transferred to the new Asda 100 yards away lol.

47 of the Nettos that aren't getting re-branded to Asda are being sold, mostly to Iceland, Morrisons or UGO(Haldanes) to avoid the Asda/Netto deal being referred to the competition commission.

We used to make Netto pork pies in the pie factory I once worked in and there was nowt wrong with the way they were made, just the same as the others, only the wrapping was different and they were beaut. I worked at Adams in Lincolnshire.

Ive just been to netto in seacombe, its already owned by asda, but its not going to be turned into an asda, it can,t be due to the fact that asda in liscard and tescos express are less than 4 miles away from it. so unless anybody buys the building it will just stand empety. such a shame cus im moving to bell vue rd, just to the side of neto, and i was looking for ward to it becoming an asda. as thats the local buzz going around at the moment. that the seacombe netto will become an asda well it wont. the people that work in the seacombe netto will be divided out to asdas existing shops, to work, for a period of at least 3 months, this stops asda having to pay ther redundancies. girl on the till told me all this befor. Its getting quite empety in ther now. Just brought the last table and chairs set lol
