ALDI ready for business in South Australia

ALDI’s South Australian distribution centre at Regency Park in Adelaide is complete and will be ready for business when the retailer opens its first stores in the state from early next year.

The first 150 store assistants begin training this month, with confirmation that ALDI’s first SA stores will open on February 3, 2016.

“The completion of ALDI’s distribution centre is an important step for our business,” ALDI South Australia Managing Director Viktor Jakupec said. “As the hub of ALDI’s network in South Australia, it will service up to 50 stores and help us to bring the ALDI shopping experience to local residents.

“We know excitement is building among South Australian shoppers and we look forward to showing them the benefits ALDI can bring both to their wallet and their lifestyle.”

With construction well underway, ALDI’s first stores are on track for their February openings. These include stores at Seaford Heights, Parafield Gardens, Hallett Cove and Woodcroft.

ALDI’s following round of store openings will include Modbury, Noarlunga, Mount Barker and St Agnes in March, with a total of 16 SA stores expected to be open by the end of 2016.

The first ALDI store managers for the state have returned to SA after spending eight weeks on the eastern seaboard learning the company’s way of doing business.

ALDI says the managers, selected from a highly competitive field of more than 3,000 applicants, will help the business deliver the best possible shopping experience to customers, and will have rewarding career opportunities with industry-leading employment benefits.

As ALDI’s SA expansion progresses, other confirmed areas of interest for new store openings include West Lakes, Hawthorn, Victor Harbor, Blakeview, Smithfield, Kilburn, Gilles Plains, Berri, Marion, Aldinga, Evanston, Nuriootpa, Golden Grove, Salisbury, Mount Gambier, Port Pirie and Yorke Peninsula.
