Walmart-owned Asda Group in the UK plans to provide grocery pickup services - dubbed "click and collect" - in an expanded number of its store parking lots, adding 10 a week until all of its more than 500 stores have the offering.

"Click and collect" currently is available at about 300 stores. The rollout is expected to take until next summer.

According to Retail Week, "Arch-rival Tesco this week revealed it is piloting its first off-site click-and-collect points at a school and two car parks in York and intends to expand this to libraries and sports centres. It now has 200 drive thrus at its stores, which will rise to 300 next year."
