ALDI has announced plans to expand its supermarket in Moreton and invites shoppers to have their say.
Proposals for the branch on Hoylake Road include a new, larger grocery store designed to improve convenience with a more customer-focused layout to allow products to be found more easily with wider aisles and more natural lighting. .
A spokesperson for Aldi said the proposed extension would not only represent a significant investment in Moreton, but also create 10 new full-time and part-time stores, as well as new employment opportunities during construction and through the supply chain.
The new store will include initiatives to reduce its environmental impact, such as: all electricity used in the store will come from renewable energy sources, four electric vehicle charging points with additional infrastructure for future needs and a system on-site heat recovery, which means the store is self-heating.
The store would be designed to improve convenience with a more customer-focused layout to allow products to be found more easily with wider aisles and more natural lighting.
The proposals would also provide 32 additional parking spaces for customers, bringing the total to 118 spaces.
Michael Breeze, Aldi Property Manager, said: “After being a part of the local community for many years, we are delighted to announce the continuation of our long term investment in Moreton.
“Aldi’s existing store is over-trading and no longer suitable for our loyal customers.
“More space is needed to improve the customer experience and continue to deliver the high standards our customers have come to expect.
“We want to hear from the local population before submitting a planning application in the coming weeks and encourage residents to share their views.”
