Bideford Aldi to reopen with 'fresh' new look this week

Aldi will reveal a fresh new look for its Bideford store when it re-opens to customers this week.

Standing at 1,125 sqm of retail space, a more ‘customer-focused layout’ should allow for the products customers want to be found more easily.

The transformation is part of Aldi’s £600m 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, which will reopen on Thursday, May 12, at 8am, 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. 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.

Bideford customers can also take a walk down the ‘Aisle of Aldi’, where they will find ‘legendary Specialbuys’ which are available every Thursday and Sunday. During opening week, the store will be offering a range of car accessories including an All-In-1 Car Cleaning Brush for £16.99, a Car Valeting Kit for £7.99 and a Beldray Revo Handheld Vacuum for £39.99.

Aldi Store Manager Ashley Buss 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.”

The store, which has 98 car parking spaces, is located on Atlantic Park Way, EX39 3FR, and will be open:

Monday: 8:00am - 8:00pm

Tuesday - Saturday: 8.00am – 10.00pm

Sunday: 10.00am -4.00pm
