Aldi has announced plans to start work on rebuilding its Prenton store at the end of this year.
The existing Aldi in Prenton store will temporarily close on Saturday 24 December at 6pm and is expected to re-open in November 2023.
A spokesperson for Aldi said that the business is committing to long-term investment in Prenton by replacing its current store with a new, modern food store and improving car parking for customers.
The existing building is approaching 40 years old and was previously owned by another operator, as such the building is no longer fit for purpose and has reached the end of its operational life.
The works will see the existing building replaced with a modern, energy-efficient store providing more floor space and wider aisles for an improved customer experience.
The plans will also see a larger and improved car park with 125 spaces and a new access point created from Woodchurch Road.
A spokesperson for Aldi, said, “Having been part of the community for 12 years, we are delighted to be redeveloping our existing food store to improve our offering. The plans represent our commitment to long-term investment in Prenton.”
“The existing store is no longer fit for purpose, as such more space is required to improve customer experience and continue to deliver the high standards our customers have come to expect.”
“We look forward to welcoming our loyal customers back through the doors in November 2023.”
The modernisation plans represent a multi-million-pound investment in Prenton and will protect jobs for Aldi’s existing staff, as well as introducing 10 new full-time and part-time in-store roles. There will also be further employment opportunities created via construction and supported through the supply chain.
