Ger­man re­tailer con­firmed

Southern Telegraph - - News - Staff Re­porter

Dis­count Ger­man su­per­mar­ket chain Aldi is set to open a new store in Bal­divis in mid-2019.

The 1850sqm Aldi su­per­mar­ket is ex­pected to open at Stock­land Bal­divis Shop­ping Cen­tre near the chil­dren’s play area be­tween Kmart and Wool­worths.

Shop­pers will be able to en­joy Aldi’s low prices and pop­u­lar spe­cial buys, to­gether with fresh fruit, veg­eta­bles and bread de­liv­ered daily. Com­bined with the re­cent open­ing of a new Rivers store and the re­lo­cated Red Dot, about 40 jobs have been cre­ated at the shop­ping cen­tre.

Stock­land Bal­divis cen­tre man­ager Darin Ma­her said he was thrilled to be in­tro­duc­ing the new re­tailer to the cen­tre.

He said he looked for­ward to ex­pand­ing the re­tail of­fer­ings to meet the wants and needs of the com­mu­nity.

“We re­cently cel­e­brated the ar­rival of Rivers at the cen­tre and have al­ready re­ceived a great deal of pos­i­tive feed­back from our cus­tomers,” he said.

“We are also look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing Aldi next year and are con­fi­dent that the much-loved Ger­man gro­cery store chain will make an ex­cel­lent ad­di­tion to our ex­ist­ing cen­tre of­fer­ing.”

The Sound Tele­graph un­der­stands the Aldi store will oc­cupy the for­mer Red Dot space com­bined with those of Best & Less, Ol­lie’s Place and Mrs Fields, which will close to ac­com­mo­date the move.
