Aldi opens once again after store gets makeover
IT’S all change when the revamped Aldi in Tewkesbury throws open its doors today.
The discount supermarket has been closed for refurbishment .
The German-owned company boasts of a more customer-focused layout with wider aisles at the new-look store, which has benefited from the company’s £300m investment programme in the UK.
It’s always disorientating when supermarket change their layouts, and Aldi has provided a handy guide to where its products are in the Gloucester Road shop.
Aldi said there is more space for fresh British meat and fish and a new Food to Go section near the entrance to the shop.
The famed middle aisle, where there is an eclectic mix of bargain products, remains at the heart of the store.
Aldi said the format has been created to make shopping easier for Tewkesbury customers and the new look store will now have wider aisles and clearer signs to make shopping effortless.
Fresh bread and cakes have been moved to the last aisle preventing them getting squashed under customers’ shopping and the store will now offer new, easy to browse freezers.
The store employs 29 people and an extra two jobs have been created as part of the upgrade.
There are now 76 car parking spaces following the extension, a development which caused some controversy over the loss of trees.
Aldi store manager,adam Curtis, said: “The store is looking fantastic, and we can’t wait to welcome our customers back so they can see it for themselves. We know that the quality of our products is unbeatable, and we’re committed to making sure that the shopping experience is on a par with the products and services they’re used to.”
Aldiis Britain’s fifth largest supermarket with over 840 stores and almost 33,000 employees.
