ALDI'S new store:

Anyone any idea if Aldi have made a start on their store yet at old Wheelers/Renault Garage; from outside nothing seems to be happening. blink.gif

Work won't start until around the time Parkway is finished as the site is on lease to Costain.

Thanks for that; at least a year before they can start then, unless Costain decide
they don't need for whole 12 mths??

They have some good deals, with one planned for Abingdon too.

I wonder what happened to Aldi's attempt to open a supermarket in Newbury?

Went the same way as the Labour Party's attempt to usurp the Tories in Newbury I suspect.

Isn't it opening in December? I thought Costain had paid to use the aldi site as a construction hub, and then Aldi would move in once they left?

According to Aldi, opening 2012; one at Abingdon near Homebase will open sooner.

Maybe I'm grump, but why the interest in a less-than-top-quality store? What will it add to Newbury commerce?

Perhaps it is because not every one is interested in top quality? Perhaps not everyone can afford it? Some people even get excited about the opening of a new shopping centre.

Nothing to do with the national (?) passion for the mediocre, as demonstrated by the 'Hello' interest in the height of some 'personalities' heels/'Big Brother' celebrity creation and the like?

To be fair Lidl and Aldi aren't necessarily less than top quality, they are just more european.

I have shopped in Lidl before now and have no complaints about the quaility of their goods.

I only shopped once in Aldi - that was in Brussels and they didn't have any eggs. smile.gif

I thought Aldi stores were relatively small in size? But the format works for them, clearly.
