ALDI will reveal a fresh new look for its Loughborou­gh store when it reopens tomorrow.

The store, in Belton Road, will reopen on October 22 at 8am and has been renovated to make shopping easier for customers.

The transforma­tion is part of Aldi’s £300 million investment into further improving its stores and services across the UK and is based on feedback from more than 50,000 customers.

The store employs 28 members of the community, and the refurbishm­ent will create additional job opportunit­ies, in a welcome boost to the town’s economy.

The Project Fresh renovation­s have been ongoing since 2018.

The new-look store offers increased space, dedicated to fresh British meat and fish, as well as popular Lacura health and beauty products, beers, wines and spirits.

There is also a new and improved Food to Go section, offering a choice of fresh salads, sandwiches and sushi for busy customers.

The store will now have wider aisles and clearer signs. Fresh bread and cakes have been moved to the last aisle preventing them from getting squashed under the customer’s shopping and the store will now offer new, easy to browse freezers.

Aldi store manager James Harvey said: “The store is looking fantastic, and we can’t wait to welcome our customers back so they can see it for themselves.

“Customers will notice a few small changes throughout the store to align with social distancing guidelines, ensuring we keep our community safe, and we thank you for the co-operation in ensuring the safety of both our colleagues and customers”.

The Loughborou­gh store, which has 123 parking spaces, will be open Monday to Saturday from 8am to 10pm and Sunday, 10am to 4pm.
