Aldi reveals plans for new grocery store at Gemini

DISCOUNT food retailer Aldi reveals plans to open a new store in Gemini Retail Park in Warrington.

The proposed store will replace – subject to planning agreement – ​​the Arnold Clark dealership near Europa Boulevard.

As part of its commitment to community consultation, Aldi is inviting local residents to participate in a virtual public exhibit by visiting the project’s dedicated website at aldiconsultation.co.uk/geminiretailpark.

The virtual exhibition will run from Monday January 24 to Monday February 7.

Residents will be able to consult the plans and give their opinion via an online questionnaire. Bryn Richards, Aldi Regional Property Manager, said: “We are delighted to announce our proposals for Warrington. We are aware of the popularity of our existing store at Fordton Retail Park and would like to offer local Aldi customers a new store in Warrington to continue to ensure a high quality customer experience.

“Our new store will help meet Aldi’s demand in the region while continuing to save our customers time and money.

“We invite the community to get involved in the public consultation by visiting our project website or calling the information line.

“If approved, the proposal would create up to 40 new full-time and part-time jobs at the Aldi store alone, which will be paid at a peak rate of £9.55 per hour as a minimum. There would also be other employment opportunities during construction and through the supply chain.In addition to attending the virtual exhibition by visiting the project website, people can also provide feedback by contacting the project team on the free information line 0800 298 7040
