Who will be Asda’s local hero?

The new Asda Forfar store is opening on Monday, November 7 and the search is on for nominations for a local hero from the community to officially open the store as a VIP guest.

The person can be nominated by family, friends or work colleagues and it could be somebody who constantly makes life better for people in the Forfar area, someone who goes that extra mile or a person renowned for their local charity work.

Nominations can be made up to Monday, October 24 by writing to: Asda Forfar Recruitment Centre, 1-3 St James Road, Forfar DD8 2AQ or by e-mail to asdaforfar@eurorscg.com

New store manager, Robert Hallyburton, said: “During our recruitment process, we have felt a strong community spirit and pride in the local area.

“Being new to Forfar, we will work hard to be a good neighbour and we know that many of our customers are tireless in their efforts to support the area.

“That is why we want to celebrate their work and make sure that a real local hero opens the store.”

The winner will enjoy a £100 gift card and will officially open the new store on St James Street at 10am on November 7.

The new Asda Forfar will feature a George clothing department, an in-store bakery, fresh fish counter and everything needed for a full weekly shop.

It will also feature Asda’s new Chosen by you Scotland food range and customers will be able to use the Asda Price Guarantee (APG).

This will allow shoppers the chance to compare the price of their shop with competitor supermarkets and if Asda isn’t 10% cheaper, it will refund the difference.
