Congratulations to all the couples from Asda who are celebrating Valentine’s Day together.
Dozens of colleagues have been in touch in recent weeks to tell us how they met their other half while working at Asda. It all started when we posted on Facebook about our colleagues Andrew Frost and Samantha Gilfillan who got engaged at our Hamilton store.
Security colleague Andrew proposed to Checkout Section Leader Samantha in the store’s security office in front of fellow colleagues – and she said yes! The couple got together four years ago and they met at work when Samantha was a Christmas temp and Andrew trained her on the tills.
Our post about Andrew and Samantha attracted hundreds of great comments from couples who met while working in the same store, including Josh and Jo Scarborough.
They met at our Grantham store in 2013 and got married a year later. They even came in to store on their wedding day to show colleagues their outfits!
