News: Aldi shops around for another Rotherham store

By

Aldi, Britain's fastest growing grocer, has outlined a site in Bramley for a new Rotherham store.

The 1,000 sq m store is proposed on land currently occupied by lighting and conservatory retail units on Bawtry Road. A planning application has yet to be submitted but local residents are already being consulted on their views.

Aldi said that the store could create 40 jobs and that the "proposal will enable the investment that is required to redevelop the site and meet the Council's aspirations to deliver growth and environmental improvements in Bramley centre through a provision of a foodstore which is promoted in the Council's emerging planning policy."

Replacing the current buildings, draft plans show a custom built discount food store with 82 parking spaces and access from both Bawtry Road, next to the King Henry pub, and Main Street.

The UK arm of Germany-based Aldi was reported to have made a pretax profit of £157.9m in the year to December 31 2012, up from £70.5m in 2011, as sales increased 40.6% to £3.89 billion.

Aldi announced last year that it is planning to invest £181m in the opening of 40 new stores by the end of 2013 and recently opened its 500th UK store. Recent openings in Rotherham include Manvers, Dinnington and Eastwood.

Across Rotherham, new Aldi stores are already proposed at Parkgate and Swallownest.

A public exhibition is to be held for Bramley residents to find out more at Bramley Working Mens Club, Cross Street on January 23 between 3pm and 7pm.

Yes... morrisons have no competition here. We need somewhere nearer than town and an aldi store is just what bramley ordered. Bring on the price war.

The only reason I don't do a lot of shopping at Aldi now is because it is a cash situation and I am a pensioner and shop a month in advance at the moment. Think about this, Aldi please.

Cannot wait for Aldi to open. We travel to Aldi at Dinnington so it'll be great to have a local branch in the village, also make the competitors think twice about things !! Come Aldi get your finger out.
