Second multi-million pound Aldi store to open in Lincoln

Work is underway on the second Aldi supermarket store on Newark Road, Lincoln after a multi-million pound investment.

The new shop, on the former site of Ready Rent a Car, will open for business on October 2, 2014.

The store development, which covers 990 square metres of sales space, has created 40 new jobs in the area, with recruitment currently ongoing.

Staff training has also begun from the Aldi store on Wragby Road.

A 75-space car park is being constructed, and the store will be open between 8am and 10pm between Mondays and Saturdays, and 10am until 4pm on Sundays.

Property Director, Mark Taylor, said: “Works are progressing extremely well on the second store for Lincoln.

“Aldi are excited about the opening of their new store and the ability to offer residents of Newark road and the surrounding areas fresh fruit and vegetables daily, at a significantly lower price than other mainstream supermarkets.

“The consultation for the planning application back last year went extremely well and was very well supported.”

The German supermarket chain has over 8,000 stores worldwide, 400 of which are based in the UK.
