Worcester Editorial 3rd Apr, 2017   0

A GOLD medal winning British Olympian will be on hand to officially open Aldi’s third store in the city.

Located on Bath Road, the store will officially be opened on Thursday (April 6) at 8am by rowing hero Matthew Langridge.

Representatives from Acorns Children’s Hospice will also attend the store opening to receive a donation of food products and essentials to support the charity’s care for children and their families in Worcester.

The new store has created 32 jobs and offers 96 car park spaces and a store boasting 1,341sqm of space.

Aldi’s Bath Road store is the third in Worcester after the Pheasant Street store and the more recent Tybridge Street acquisition.

Store manager Alan Ridley said: “The new Worcester store will improve the shopping experience for customers in the city, meaning more households will benefit from Aldi’s affordable prices, without compromising on quality.

“The team and I are really looking forward to welcoming customers and it will be great to have an Olympic hero to help us celebrate.”

In the coming weeks, store manager Alan Ridley will visit the 1st Worcester Scout Group to present a product donation of food goods to aid the group’s weekly crafting activities.

Matthew Langridge, who won Gold in the Men’s Eight Rowing at the 2016 Rio Olympics, added: “As an athlete, I appreciate how important it is to eat fresh, high quality and healthy produce.

“The range on offer at Aldi, allows customers to benefit from excellent quality at reasonable prices,” he added.

The new store will open from 8am to 10pm on Monday to Saturday and from 10am to 4pm on Sundays.
