Great news in the fight against frivolous lawsuits. Bad news for lawyers!
Asda Stores Ltd is a British supermarket chain which retails financial services, food, clothing, toys and general merchandise. It also has a mobile telephone network, Asda Mobile. Its head office is in Asda House in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Asda became a subsidiary of the American retail giant Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, in 1999, and is the second largest chain in the UK after Tesco. In December 2010, Asda's share of the UK grocery market stood at 16.5%. Asda's marketing promotions have usually been based solely on price, with Asda promoting itself under the slogan Britain's Lowest Priced Supermarket, 13 Years Running. As a wholly owned division of Wal-Mart, Asda is not required to declare quarterly or half-yearly earnings. It submits full accounts to Companies House each October.
