ALDI opens new Corner Store in heritage-listed building

ALDI is opening its latest convenience-focused ALDI Corner Store today in the Sydney suburb of Rosebery.

Located in The Cannery, the store is custom built to provide “unrivalled convenience” to customers in high density, urban areas, stocking an extensive range of ready-to-go meals from sushi to sandwiches as well as artisan bakery items alongside ALDI’s low-priced grocery range.

“We are thrilled to be opening our brand-new Rosebery Corner Store in such a unique building, rich in history,” says ALDI Corner Stores Director Huw Longman.

“It was pivotal to ALDI that the design of this new store maintained the integrity and culture of The Cannery. Implementing our Corner Store format gave us the opportunity to utilise such a beautiful space which will provide both a modern and convenient shopping experience to the Rosebery community.”

The new store is the first to be located on a historic site. Once a soup factory, the almost hundred-year-old heritage-listed building is a hub for locals in the heart of Rosebery.

The store leverages the generous natural light from the shape and design of The Cannery and boasts an “innovative” convenience led layout offering visitors, simple navigation, modern interior designs, and self-checkouts.

ALDI has commissioned a mural created by renowned local artist Andrew Dennis who has been creating “visually impactful” artwork dominated by his “strong” drawing style and bold use of colour for over 20 years. For this piece, Mr Dennis has drawn inspiration from the building’s origins as a cannery to create an installation marrying its past and present function.

Shoppers will be able to take home a piece of the mural in the form of a “first-of-its-kind” shopping bag. Launching exclusively at the Rosebery store, the bag priced at 99¢ features a portion of Mr Dennis’ mural.
