ALDI is opening a brand new supermarket in Upton, Poole next month.

The store will open at 8am with team GB's Kate French cutting the red ribbon on Thursday, December 16.

The new store will offer fresh, British meat products with weekly offers, Aldi’s award-winning ‘specially selected’ range – which was recently voted ‘Favourite Premium Supermarket Range’ by readers of Good Housekeeping magazine for the second year running – exclusive beers, wines and spirits, and a ‘food to go’ section at the front of the store.

Aldi’s 'Specialbuys' will also be available in the middle aisle every Thursday and Sunday, offering extraordinary value on a wide range of products, from electrical items to garden tools.

Aldi Store Manager Paul Clarke said: “We can’t wait to open the doors to the new store in Poole. It’s set to be a special day and having Olympic hero Kate French join us will make it a morning to remember.”
