Fresh new look for Aldi's Failsworth store

Date published: 23 February 2021


Aldi will reveal a fresh new look for its Failsworth store when it re-opens to customers on Thursday (February 25) at 8am.

Standing at 1,124 sqm of retail space, a more customer-focused layout allows for the products customers know and love to be found more easily, whilst browsing new ranges.

The transformation is part of Aldi’s £500m investment into further improving its stores and services across the UK, and is based on feedback from more than 50,000 customers. 

The Project Fresh renovations have been ongoing since 2018.

The new-look store offers increased space, dedicated to fresh British meat and fish, as well as popular Lacura health and beauty products, award-winning beers, wines and spirits, famous Mamia babycare products, and  a new and improved Food to Go section, offering a choice of fresh salads, sandwiches and sushi for busy customers.

The format has been created to make shopping easier for customers and the store will now have more space and clearer signs to make shopping effortless.

Fresh bread and cakes have 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 35 members of the local community, and the refurbishment will create additional job opportunities.

Customers visiting the store can safely pick up all the essentials they need.

The Aldi on Sisson Street has a number of safety measures in place, including sanitisation stations on entry, Perspex screens at its tills and social distancing reminders in store, as well as a traffic light system to control the number of people going in and out of the store.

Failsworth customers can also take a walk down the ‘Aisle of Aldi’, where they will find legendary Specialbuys which are available every Thursday and Sunday.

Aldi Store Manager Emma Williams 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 you for the co-operation in ensuring the safety of both our colleagues and customers.”

The store, which has 79 car parking spaces, will be open:

Monday – Saturday: 8am – 10pm

Sunday: 10am – 4pm
