Asda, which is owned by US retailing giant Wal-Mart, is creating 300 jobs with 30 new photo centres at a cost of £5m.
The company will create another 400 jobs by adding jewellery departments at a further 30 stores, at a cost of £1.6m.
And 60 jobs are being created with the opening of six optical departments, at a cost of £400,000.
The expansion programme is expected to get under way at the end of the year.
