Greenwich set to see new Asda store

An application is in to open a branch of Asda in Greenwich.

The supermarket are looking to open an Asda Express at 123 Greenwich South Street.

Proposed site of new Asda

The co-op had previously applied to open though little has happened since. The site was formerly a Majestic wine shop.

Mixed-use development

That was demolished – first covered on this site back in 2018 – with a new block built on site with flats above commercial space.

Initial plans for the development were blocked though a revised application was given the green light.

Plans for the new Asda can be viewed here.


Adverts are far from enough to cover site costs and my rent.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

  • That building is on Greenwich South Street. I know this as I live on the street.

    • ‘That building is on Greenwich South Street.’ As mentioned in this report. These ‘locals’ are expensive and ASDA as a whole, is not cheap. A Lidl would have been a better fit for the immediate area and sufficiently far from the Aldi not to be in competition.

      • To be fair I did edit it. No idea how I still put the wrong street initially as I spent a while trawling the Greenwich council planning site for its history looking up the wrong street. Then found the right streets, cursed myself and still put the wrong bloody street name up after. Silly mistake by myself.

  • Asda definitely seem to be ramping up in Lewisham, Deptford and Greenwich. There are also licence application posters up around the Timberyard site on Evelyn Street for them to open in the nearly finished flats there

  • An Asda Express Store in Greenwich will be an asset for local residents as many people like to shop locally for daily essentials.
