Asda is to axe hundreds of jobs at its Leeds head office and a further site in the East Midlands as part of a major cost-cutting drive.
About 300 jobs are to go at Asda House in Leeds and George House in Leicester with job descriptions to a further 800 roles changed.
Figures for 2016, released in September, showed like-for-like sales were down 5.7% compared with the previous year.
Asda is the third-largest UK supermarket behind Tesco and Sainsbury’s but has been hurt by the rise of German discounters Aldi and Lidl.
