Yes, dear people of Upminster, the day you have been waiting for has arrived – Aldi has once again opened its doors following an extensive refurbishment.

The St Mary’s Lane store has been closed for 10 long, long weeks, much to eager shoppers’ annoyance.

But at 8am this morning (Thursday, October 11) the supermarket chain once again opened its doors.

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

The store employs 36 members of the local community and the refurbishment has created an additional six jobs, in a welcome boost to the town’s economy.

Aldi Store Manager, Aneta Tipping, said: “The store is looking fantastic, and we can’t wait to welcome our loyal customers back so they can see it for themselves.

“We know that the value and quality of our products is unbeatable, and we’re committed to making sure that the shopping experience each customer enjoys in our stores is on a par with the products and services they’re used to.

“We’ve got some great Specialbuy deals on throughout our opening week, so we’re set for a busy opening week.”
