More than 200 jobs have been filled at the new Asda store opening up in Chadwell Heath next month - and there are more available.

The supermarket has so far employed 220 people in the 29,000sqft building after whittling down the candidates from more than 6,000 applications.

Asda were not able to provide information detailing how many of those jobs went to local people.

It said a mixture of part-time positions across a number of departments were still open to applicants.

When the store in Whalebone Lane opens on Monday October 28, it will include a fresh pizza counter and bakery section as well as as 21,000sqft food hall, a 4,000sqft George clothing section and a non-food section offering homeware and technology.

Adjacent to the store, more than 320 car parking spaces will be available to shoppers.

Kristian Blount, general manager at Asda Chadwell Heath, said: “We’re really proud to be opening our new store in Chadwell Heath, creating more than 230 jobs and playing our part in the community. The number of job applications we have received so far is fantastic and we are still welcoming applications.

“We are excited to get the doors open in October and we are looking forward to meeting people from the local community. We have a team of colleagues who are willing to provide world class service to our customers. We hope to offer them a convenient and easy shop.”

The supermarket will also be running Asda’s Chosen By You, Given By Us initiative where three local organisations will be voted for by customers to receive support from the new store.
