A Leicestershire branch of Aldi is preparing to re-open this week following a significant refurbishment and extension. A spokesperson for the supermarket chain has told LeicestershireLive that the improved Syston store will re-open at 8am on Thursday, July 28.
The new retail space covers 1,370sqm and – as a result of the extension – Aldi has created eight new jobs and is continuing to recruit more staff members. More information is available on their recruitment website.
Aldi claims the new format has been created to make shopping even easier for Syston customers, with the store now having more space and clearer signs. Fresh bread and cakes have been moved to the last aisle, preventing them from getting squashed under customers’ shopping, and the store will now offer new, easy to browse freezers.
Syston customers can also take a walk down the ‘Aisle of Aldi’, where they will find the supermarket’s popular Specialbuys which are available every Thursday and Sunday. The store will be run by store manager Lynda Goodwin, along with a team of 30 colleagues from the local community.
Store manager Lynda Goodwin said: “The team and I are really looking forward to welcoming back some familiar faces as well as new customers and supplying our local community with the everyday amazing products we have available. Hopefully the new look store will make shopping at Aldi Syston that bit easier and more comfortable.”
The store will be open Monday to Saturday 8am until 10pm and Sunday 10am until 4pm. You’ll find the store in Melton Road, Syston.
