Aldi in Thornbury will have wider aisles and clearer signs when it reopens on Thursday.

The store has been closed since Friday for refurbishment but will now have a new 'customer-focused layout'.

Named 'Project Fresh', the renovation is part of Aldi’s £300m investment into improving its stores and services across the UK.

The new-look store offers increased space, dedicated to fresh British meat and fish, as well Lacura health and beauty products, award winning beers, wines and spirits, Mamia babycare products, and a new Food to Go section.

Fresh bread and cakes have also been moved to the last aisle preventing them getting squashed under customers’ shopping and the store will now offer new, easy to browse freezers.

The store employs 24 members of staff and the refurbishment will create an additional two jobs.

Aldi store manager, Matt Parry, 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’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.

“Customers will notice a few small changes throughout the store to align with social distancing guidelines, ensuring we keep our community safe, and we thank everyone for their co-operation in ensuring the safety of both our colleagues and customers”.

Customers visiting the store will also be able to take advantage of Aldi’s famous Specialbuys, which are available every Thursday and Sunday. During opening week, the store will be offering a selection of Cast Iron cookware, including, a Cast Iron Casserole dish for £24.99, Stoneware mugs for £3.99 and a Cast Iron Roaster for £19.99.

The store reopens at 8am on Thursday.
