Supermarket makes changes as it battles against competitors
SUPERMARKET Asda has revealed plans to cut about 200 jobs.
Bosses are making changes as the company rolls out a five-year plan to tackle increasing competition from rival stores and discount chains.
The changes will not affect shop floor staff.
The moves are part of a package of recommendations put forward by consultancy firm McKinsey, which also includes calls for a widening of product ranges.
A spokeswoman said: “In the spirit of openness, we've let our colleagues know that we will be having some more detailed discussions with them this week about a new structure.”
Asda recently announced plans to set up its store expansion and spend £750m on new sites.
