Supermarket giant Asda is bringing real value to more customers in the UK, the president and chief executive of the store's US parent company Walmart said, after it announced it would create 12,000 new jobs over the next five years. Doug McMillon said:
It has been a pleasure to meet with the Prime Minister today and reaffirm Walmart's commitment to investing in the UK.
A seismic shift in the structure of the retail market is under way - not just in the UK but right across the world.
Asda recognised the change in its market and took early action to develop and implement a strategy that will see it grow - creating more new jobs and bringing real value to more customers in the UK.
