The 40,000 square foot store has been built as part of the Arla Old Dairy development in Victoria Road, which will also include a 4D Cineworld Cinema, as well as restaurants like Nandos, Bella Italia and Frankie and Benny’s. The new development will also house 132 homes.
The new store will have over 500 customer car parking spaces and will be open from 7am-11pm from Monday to Saturday and 11am-5pm on Sunday.
The supermarket will offer a fresh produce section, as well as counters where customers can purchase products such as bread and fish. The store will also include a café and a click and collect service, where customers will be able to order their shopping online and collect it in store.
Asda bosses said the South Ruislip store will create 300 part time and full time positions for people living in the area.
Lee Randall, Asda South Ruislip’s general store manager, said: “Customers can look forward to a wide range of products from George clothing to groceries, meaning we’re the perfect destination for a complete weekly shop.
“The team and I are looking forward to becoming part of the local community, especially our community life champion, Claire Rose, who will be working alongside the town’s groups and projects to help support them whenever possible.
“We’re so excited to be opening in a few months’ time, and it’s fantastic that we’re able to offer 300 jobs to members of the local community with a variety of positions.”
As Hillingdon is Here exclusively reported a few days ago, the Cineworld 4D cinema, which will have shaking and vibrating seats, will open nearby in June.
Citygrove, who are the developers behind the Old Dairy project in South Ruislip, also confirmed to Hillingdon is Here that restaurant Nando’s is expected to open to the public by the end of this month.
The four other restaurants on the Old Dairy site (Mimosa, Bella Italia, Chiquito and Frankie and Benny’s) are expected to open to the general public in either May or June, although no specific opening dates have been confirmed.
Two other supermarkets – Lidl and Aldi – have also been developed along Victoria Road.

Jeremy Wasden, who owns Belvoir Lettings in Uxbridge, previously told Hillingdon Is Here that South Ruislip would no longer be a 'poor cousin' with all the developments in the area.
He said: “With the Asda store and the Arla development, it is going to establish a new small town centre for South Ruislip. South Ruislip has been a poor cousin to Ruislip Manor and to Ruislip itself. So it will create a centre.”
Mr Wasden, pictured below, said: “The Cinema as well is going to add an area of interest and these are all reasons to be local and not to commute to the area and so I do think that is going add demand for property. We have already seen strong demand for property in the area and I think that is all going to help in establishing a nice neighbourhood.”
