Olympic star opens Aldi

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

OLYMPIC cy­clist Ja­son Kenny was the star as Aldi opened the doors to its new store in Poyn­ton.

To cel­e­brate the open­ing, Aldi handed out golden en­velopes to the first 100 peo­ple in the queue, each con­tain­ing a prize.

Star prize win­ner John Wal­ton, who queued from 10pm the evening be­fore to get his hands on golden ticket, walked away with a 55-inch TV. Other cus­tomers won a Aldi ham­per, Smart­phone 5, HD ac­tion cam­corder, bags of Aldi shop­ping and vouch­ers to spend in store.

Lo­cated on Lon­don Road South, the store was of­fi­cially opened by Ja­son Kenny and store man­ager, David Styan, in a rib­bon cut­ting cer­e­mony.

The new store has cre­ated 30 new jobs and bosses are still look­ing for 12 staff to join the team.

Mr Styan, said: “There was a real buzz as the store opened and we are pleased to have had such pos­i­tive feed­back from mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“We’d like to say a big thank you to ev­ery­one in Poyn­ton for their pa­tience as we have been work­ing on the de­vel­op­ment, and we hope our new store of­fers greater shop­ping choice and con­ve­nience for shop­pers in the area.”
