SHOPPERS will get the first glimpse of the supermarket's new look when it reopens today following a refurbishment.

Aldi will reveal a fresh new look for its Greenwell Road store, in Newton Aycliffe, when it reopens to customers at 8am.

The transformation is part of the company's £300m investment into improving its stores and service across the UK, and is based on feedback from more than 50,000 customers.

Improvements include new chillers and freezers including a ‘Food to Go’ section, more space dedicated to fresh, British meat products and a dedicated health and beauty section.

The store employs 21 members of the local community and the refurbishment has created an additional two jobs.

Store Manager, Melissa Longstaff, 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 know that the value and quality of our products is unbeatable, and 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.

“We’ve got some great Specialbuy deals on throughout our opening week, so we’re set for a busy opening week.”

The store is open from 8am to 10pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sunday.
