Sainsbury's drills down on digital while waiting for regulator decision on Asda takeover

One of the biggest developments in the emerging online grocery wars in 2018 was the defensive move by UK supermarket chain Sainsbury’s to announce a planned £7.3 billion takeover of Walmart’s Asda business. So impactful would such a tie-up be, that the deal has had to be referred to the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) regulator for clearance, a move that currently leaves Sainsbury’s in a holding pattern with CMA not likely to report back until January next year.
