Asda has announced it is to remove manned checkouts at 82 of its petrol station sites, including Queensferry, according to reports.

This move highlights a growing trend towards automated services in the retail sector.

Asda started converting these sites to drive-thru kiosks with pay-at-the-pump services in December last year.

To date, 14 of its forecourts have fully transitioned to this new system, the Daily Mirror reports.

The supermarket giant plans to complete the conversion of all 82 locations by the summer of this year.

Asda has assured that all staff members currently employed at these locations will be redeployed to adjacent superstore outlets.

This decision aligns with the changing consumer payment trends, as an Asda spokesperson noted: “As more than 90% of all payments on our Superstore forecourts are made via card or a contactless device, the colleagues who worked on these sites are moving into the store so they can better serve our customers.”

The list of 82 forecourts undergoing this change spans across the UK, from Queensferry and Wrexham to farther reaches like Newport, and Cardiff Bay. Other notable locations include Darlington, Govan, and Swansea.
