Asda launches free bus service for Burnham's Morrisons customers

Highbridge's Asda supermarket has launched a free bus service to shuttle former customers of Morrisons supermarket in Burnham-On-Sea to their store instead.

The supermarket says it wants to help residents in Burnham-On-Sea who are now without a nearby supermarket following Sunday's closure of Morrisons.

The two bus services are initially running only on Tuesdays and Thursdays to start with as a trial, but the service may expand if it proves popular.

Mick Vaughan, deputy manager at the Highbridge Asda store, told "The feedback from listening groups with shoppers is that they would like a free bus service to help them with mobility following the closure of Morrisons in Burnham and to reduce the cost of travel for their regular shopping trips."
