ASDA has reported a 2.7% rise in third quarter sales, covering the three months ended 30th September and including the end of the first national lockdown.

Online orders across the ASDA.com and George.com businesses increased by 72% year-on-year, with increased demand for Christmas-related goods.

The retailer, which was recently sold by Walmart to the Issa brothers and TDR Capital, said that online sales growth is expected to continue to increase during quarter four, and has increased grocery home delivery capacity to 765,000 slots per week.

ASDA believes that customers will be celebrating Christmas in a different way, and noted that sales of frozen turkey crowns, which serve fewer people, have increased by 230% when compared with 2019.

Chief executive officer Roger Burnley said, “After a rollercoaster year, it’s clear our customers are already planning for a very different Christmas,” 

“We have already seen a marked shift in buying patterns with customers stocking up their freezers and cupboards with festive essentials earlier than ever before, which suggests they are getting used to expecting the unexpected but preparing to enjoy themselves as much as possible.

“Whatever happens during the next few weeks, we are totally focused on delivering a great Christmas for our customers during these uncertain times.”
