Aldi confirms new Australian store locations
Aldi has confirmed a number of new store locations, all set to open by the end of 2017.
The German discount supermarket currently has 473 stores located across Australia and recently expanded into South Australia and Western Australia.
Aldi will however spend the rest of 2017 opening further stores in the following locations:
New South Wales – Hillsdale, Wetherill Park, Macarthur Square, Narellan, Riverwood and Maitland (Maitland store to open July)
Queensland – Drewvale (July), Caboolture (August) and Coorparoo.
Campbellfield (August), Bell Park (September), Tarneit Central (October), The Glen (October) and Gladstone Park.
South Australia – Adelaide Airport (August), Kensington Park (October), Aldinga (November), Victor Harbor (November), Ingle Farm (November) and Nuriootpa (December).
Western Australia – South Fremantle (July), Bunbury (July), Banksia Grove, Busselton, Northam, Yokine and Currambine.
An Aldi spokesperson said each of the stores will follow Aldi’s new store format with clearer signage, redesigned shelving and expanded wooden produce bays, energy efficient LED lighting and extended chillers.
“This will allow for a more pleasant and efficient shopping experience, while also catering for an expanded range across our fresh meat, produce and health categories,” the spokesperson said.
“While the new format means a better shopping experience for customers, it won’t lead to higher prices,” the spokesperson said.
Woolworths remains to have the largest supermarket footprint in Australia with 922 supermarkets.
