New look Aldi.

Aldi will reveal a fresh new look for its Handsworth store, when it re-opens to customers at 8am on June 27.

A more customer-focused layout with wider aisles allows for the products customers require to be found more easily, while browsing new product ranges.

The transformation is part of Aldi’s £300m investment into further improving its stores and services across the UK, and is based on feedback from more than 50,000 customers.  

The new-look store offers increased space, dedicated to fresh British meat and fish, Lacura health and beauty products, award winning beers, wines and spirits, Mamia babycare products, and a new and improved Food to Go section at the front of the store. This will give a choice of fresh salads, sandwiches and sushi for busy customers.

Fresh bread and cakes have been moved to the last aisle to prevent them getting squashed under other shopping, and the store will offer new, easy to view freezers.

Currently employing 20 members of the local community, the store’s refurbishment may create an additional job opportunity.

Customers visiting the store can take advantage of Aldi’s Specialbuys, available every Thursday and Sunday. During opening week the store will stock a wide range of camping essentials, including, a festival pop-up tent for £19.99, a family tent for £89.99 and a selection of camping chairs from £14.99.
