Asda has revealed the full list of 82 stores that will be making the transition over to having cashless petrol stations in 2024.

And there’s a quite a few here in Greater Manchester.

Adding to the 150 already ‘unmanned’ forecourts nationwide, the supermarket retailer has now revealed the next chunk of stores set to make the controversial change to becoming fully cashless before the summer arrives.

Tills at 14 stations across the UK were already axed back in December of last year – but now, a further 68 have been confirmed by Asda to join them.

Asda supermarkets in Manchester, Bolton, Oldham, and Wigan are among those set to transition.

Of course, following what has been criticism fired at the supermarket by shoppers, with some even expressing a want to ‘boycott’ the retailer over the decision, Asda has made a point of assuring customers that all the fuel stations switching to ‘cashless’ are right next to superstores.

Affected fuel stations being next to Asda superstores apparently means that customers will apparently “never be far from help”, should they need it.

But what exactly does this mean then? What should shoppers be expecting from their ‘cashless’ Asda stores before 2024 is out? Well, it essentially means that drivers will no longer have the option to pay for fuel at forecourt kiosks, which are currently ‘manned’ by members of staff, and will be required to ‘pay at pump’ instead.

Not only that, but just as the ‘cashless’ name suggests, customers will also need a credit or debit card, or be able to pay on their phone, in order to fill up on fuel.


Asda says that 90% of customer fuel payments are currently made by card.

Staff that currently work at the petrol stations set to go ‘cashless’ will be relocated into Asda stores so that they can “better serve customers”, an Asda spokesperson has confirmed.
