Aldi opens its doors in South Australia
Aldi has opened its doors this morning to hundreds of customers waiting to shop at its first four South Australian stores.
The stores are located a Parafield Gardens, Hallet Cove, Seaford Heights and Woodcroft. Each have been designed according to Aldi’s “new-look format” which is currently being trialed in selected Aldi stores across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. The new format includes expanded wooden produce bays, stylish signage and energy efficient LED lighting and chillers.
Managing Director for Aldi in South Australia, Viktor Jakupec, said the supermarket was proud to open in South Australia after years of planning and organisation.
“There is a strong appetite among South Australians for an alternative place to shop and we are eager to show them the significant benefits that can come from shopping at ALDI, both for their wallets and lifestyles,” Jakupec said.
Aldi said to support its state-wide expansion it has signed contacts with 12 new South Australian produce suppliers and hired 250 employees for Store Manager, Retail Assistant and Distribution Centre roles. The supermarket’s long-term investment in the state will see a total of 900 new permanent jobs at ALDI.
Today’s store openings form part of ALDI’s long-term expansion plans, which will see up to 50 stores developed across South Australia in the coming years, providing increased grocery options and employment opportunities for local residents. Its next stores will open in March at Kilburn, Modbury, Noarlunga, Mount Barker and St Agnes, with a total of 16 stores expected to be open by the end of 2016.
