“We are delighted to be making Blackburn Square a new home for Australia’s lowest priced groceries. We offer Aussies a supermarket experience like no other and are proud to call ourselves ‘Good Different’. Our curated range of exclusive brands, streamlined operations, and our coin deposit trolleys are just some of the small differences that allow us to cut out unnecessary costs and pass these savings onto customers,” says ALDI Australia Regional Managing Director David Zalunardo.
“Our Price Promise remains the same from the day we opened our first store over 20 years ago – we won’t be beaten on the cost of your weekly shop. We look forward to welcoming the residents of Blackburn Square to the store so they can discover the savings that can be made for themselves.”
Customers can experience ALDI’s famous Special Buys aisle with new products going on sale every Wednesday and Saturday. The new store will offer an exclusive range of Special Buys for the grand opening including a Woodfire Pizza Oven for just $139 and a King Size Electric Blanket for just $44.99.
