Spring open­ing for bor­ough’s first Aldi

The Wokingham Paper - - BUSINESS -

PLANS to open the first Aldi su­per­mar­ket in the bor­ough are mov­ing ahead, with bosses ex­pect­ing to wel­come shop­pers early next year.

The pop­u­lar dis­count chain is creat­ing a new store at Sut­tons Busi­ness Park in Ear­ley. The brand-new store, which re­places pre­vi­ously empty ware­house units, will cre­ate a num­ber of jobs when it opens.

And it will be next to a Costa Cof­fee driv­ethrough branch which is also ex­pected to open next year.

Signs are up and the car park has been cre­ated, but the fin­ish­ing touches will take a few more weeks be­fore the rib­bon will be cut on the new store.

An­other Aldi is planned for the con­tro­ver­sial Elms Field de­vel­op­ment in Wok­ing­ham’s town cen­tre.

An Aldi spokesper­son said: “Work on our new store at Sut­ton’s Busi­ness Park is pro­gress­ing well. We ex­pect to open in spring next year and look for­ward to help­ing res­i­dents to shop and save closer to home.”
