Aldi will be opening tomorrow (Friday) according to today's Newbury Weekly News (page 3), irrespective that I and thousands of others went today to their opening. We all must be living in Alice's Wonderland as our local paper wouldn't get such an important event wrong. So remember; tomorrow Aldi's will be opening. If you went today then you are delusional.

I hope you are kidding? I was going to the new Aldi today but when I saw the article in the Newbury Weekly News saying it was opening tomorrow I changed my plans. I did see the sign outside that said opening on the 21st but I thought they had complications and had to postpone until tomorrow.

I hope this is not a wind up and the NWN is right. There are too many jokers on here trying to wind people up. I cannot see the NWN getting such an event wrong. After all Aldi’s paid to put a two page spread in their paper to advertise what they are selling on their opening day.

Aldi's will be opening tomorrow (Friday). Just not for the first time, I'll let you into a little secret.....it'll be opening on Saturday as well, not for the first time this week, but certainly for the first time on a Saturday.

Sorry, I do not think that is funny. The Newbury Weekly News gave the impression that Aldi's opening day was tomorrow, not today. That is what annoys me about this forum. Too many jokers who cannot take things seriously. I am not the only one who changed their plans so that they can go to the opening day.

You can shop there already, but the opening day is still tomorrow. Some places do this so that they can see if there are any snags to iron out before the official opening day.

The official open day is today, not tomorrow. I know this because I asked. Anyway, that isn't the point. The NWN said it is opening tomorrow where it should of said it was opening today.

You mean it is not opening tomorrow? tongue.gif

It looks like it was a short, so I imagine the 'journalist' typed it on the 20th. Page 22 (and 23) is quite emphatic about being 'now open'! wink.gif

HeatherW, there is bloody great two-page spread which says NOW OPEN in the paper, why trust a little article buried inside the paper instead? But at the end of the day it is only a bloody supermarket!!! Special days are Thursdays and Sundays, so your life might be saved yet! tongue.gif

No, they are closing it.

The journalist might have made a mistake but that is what you've got sub editors for. To check mistakes.

Yes, which contradicts what is said on page 3... that it is opening tomorrow.

Who cares, it's a cheap supermarket, it's opening isn't Newsworthy to me?
