A town’s supermarket has been given a fresh new look as part of a multi-million investment.

Aldi’s store in Ashington has been included in the company’s £300m investment to improve its stores and service based on feedback from more than 50,000 customers.

There is now 1,125sqm space, a more customer-focused layout and easier to browse new ranges.

The new-look store includes developments such as new and improved chillers and freezers, with a ‘Food to Go’ section at the front of the store, and increased space dedicated to fresh, British meat products.

Beer, wine and spirits have been moved to a fixture along the back wall, and fresh bakery items have been relocated to the final aisle so products don’t get squashed under shopping.

Aldi store manager Christopher Whinham said: “The store is looking fantastic.

“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 were voted Britain’s favourite supermarket in the Which? 2018 Customer Satisfaction Survey, voted for by UK shoppers, and we’re delighted that our commitment to fantastic value and quality products is being recognised.”

The store, located in Morpeth Road, has more than 100 car parking spaces. It is open Monday to Saturday, from 8am to 10pm, and on Sundays, from 10am to 4pm.
