Early birds ex­pected

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

BELMONT res­i­dents will be among the first in Perth to get to shop at Aldi when the dis­count su­per­mar­ket opens for busi­ness to­mor­row.

The su­per­mar­ket, one of four open­ing on Wed­nes­day, is in the Belmont Fo­rum.

Cen­tre man­ager Alexan­dra McAuliffe is ex­pect­ing lots of shop­pers bright and early for when the store starts trad­ing at 8.30am.

“Our shop­pers are telling us that it’s ex­cit­ing to have one of WA’s first Aldi stores on their doorstep,” Ms McAuliffe said.

“Many peo­ple in the area have ex­pe­ri­enced Aldi else­where in Aus­tralia or in Europe, so we’re ex­pect­ing more than a few fans in the queue to­mor­row morn­ing.

“Many oth­ers will sim­ply be cu­ri­ous and ea­ger to find out what the world’s most-loved dis­count re­tailer has to of­fer them.”

An Aldi Aus­tralia rep­re­sen­ta­tive said the com­pany was ea­ger to bring its “unique value of­fer­ing to Belmont Fo­rum shop­pers, of­fer­ing high­qual­ity prod­ucts at per­ma­nently low prices”.

“We look for­ward to wel­com­ing cus­tomers to our store to­mor­row.”

Ms McAuliffe said Aldi’s ar­rival at Belmont Fo­rum was a prime ex­am­ple of how the shop­ping cen­tre was evolv­ing to bet­ter re­flect the lo­cal com­mu­nity’s chang­ing needs and de­sires.

“We’ve wel­comed en­ter­tain­ment specialist JB Hi-Fi Home and fam­ily friendly de­part­ment store Best and Less,” she said.
