ALDI will reopen one of its supermarkets later this week with a new look. 

The shop in Wallisdown Road, Bournemouth, closed on May 31 for a refit as part of the company’s £600m national investment to improve its stores. 

Among the improvements are an increased space dedicated to fresh meat and fish, health and beauty products, alcoholic drinks and a new Food to Go section, selling salads, sandwiches and sushi. 

The budget supermarket said 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 freezers. 

Hanna Benedek, store manager, 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 service they’re used to.” 

Meanwhile, the existing store could close in the near future as a planning application has been submitted for a new supermarket further up the road near the business park.
