The unrest began in the cereal aisle of the Asda store on Pearson Street just before 6 p.m. on April 2 – at a time when buyers were trying to follow social distancing rules.
The footage, which was shared online, shows three women tangled in a fight and a middle-aged man who later joined in to kick off.
Security personnel quickly entered the aisle to interrupt the fight, and the four people involved in the disorder were asked to leave the store.
The fighting is believed to have been started following a domestic disagreement between two neighbors.
An eyewitness to the combat, who did not want to be named, told Black Country Live: “One of them said,” She’s my neighbor, she grabbed me by the neck. My son has learning difficulties, we cannot go out into our garden. “
“They were fighting for a good 20 seconds before they started recording. The guy who intervened had nothing to do with them, he just broke and started kicking.

“It started in the grain aisle, so the social distancing went out the window as everyone started to push their heads. “
Appalled members of the community went to social media to express their shock at the disorder.
A Facebook commenter said, “My mom should be able to work safely, without the idiots fighting around her! “
Another added: “It’s awful, I can’t believe people behave like that! “
An Asda spokesman confirmed that a mess between customers had broken out and that security personnel had intervened and that the parties concerned had been ordered to leave the store.
He added: “We do not tolerate violence towards our customers or colleagues in our stores. We ask our customers to be respectful of each other and our colleagues and to follow the social distancing measures we have put in place to help keep everyone safe. “
Buyers who visit Asda supermarkets will see staff at the doorstep to maintain secure customer numbers and contribute to social unrest.
The chain said there were clear signage, directional barriers and floor markings to help customers move around stores easily and maintain a distance of two meters from other customers and staff.
According to its latest guidelines, the store allows customers to bring children and other members of the same household into stores, but keep this to a minimum to help maintain social distancing advice.
Customers are requested to only touch the items they intend to purchase and to use cashless payment wherever they can to minimize contact.
Supermarkets recently issued new advice to shoppers on the rules, with some asking parents to leave the kids at home and others implementing rationing of certain items.
