Aldi is set to open its brand new store in Dalkeith tomorrow (Thursday 23rd September) at 8am.
The new store will be run by Store Manager Stuart Nichols along with a team of 22 colleagues from the local community.
The new store will offer fresh, Scottish meat products with weekly offers, Aldi’s award winning ‘Specially Selected’ range – which was voted ‘Favourite Premium Supermarket Range’ by readers of Good Housekeeping magazine – exclusive Beers, Wines and Spirits, and a ‘Food to Go’ section at the front of the store. Aldi’s legendary 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.
To celebrate the store opening, Stuart Nichols and his team will be joined by Team GB silver medalist, Gemma Gibbons to cut the all-important ribbon on opening morning.
Aldi Store Manager Stuart Nichols said: “We can’t wait to open the doors to the new store in Dalkeith. It’s set to be a special day and having Olympic hero Gemma Gibbons join us will make it a morning to remember.”
Judo star Gemma Gibbons added: “I’m so excited to be opening Aldi’s new store, it will be great to chat to customers and a lovely way for me to thank Aldi for its support of Team GB.”
Additionally, the new Aldi store is calling on local charities and food banks in Dalkeith to register with Neighbourly, a community engagement platform that links businesses to charitable organisations in the local community.
Local charities that register will be able to collect surplus food and perishable products, such as fruit, vegetables and baked goods, up to seven days a week. Any charities in the area that would like to partner up with the new Aldi store should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
