ALDI Stores Limited have announced that work is to start early in the New Year to build a new, modern food store on its former Loco Works site which was granted planning permission in 2011.
They say that the new store will be completed for opening late Summer and will be in the company’s latest 1140 sqm sales floor format (shown here) with car parking for 126 cars. The site plan contains an additional 893 sqm retail unit, which Aldi is currently marketing with a view to disposing of the plot for future development.
Explaining these proposals, Graham Nicolson, Property Director for Aldi Stores in Scotland, said:
“We are very pleased to be bringing the Aldi brand to Inverurie shoppers - our existing stores at Westhill and in Aberdeen are already very popular - and with our new store in Ellon due to open later next year we are excited about our expansion plans in the North east”.
Aldi say that their stores in Scotland stock some of the finest and best value locally sourced food and drink. Aldi say that they are proud to stock more than 270 Scottish products, work with over 70 independent food and drink businesses and boast a product range which is at least 25 per cent Scottish including shortbread from Dean’s of Huntly and eggs from Farmlay in Fraserburgh.
Mr Nicolson added, “We will be announcing further details in the New Year including our recruitment plans for approximately 30 new full and part-time jobs”.
