Staff writersAlbany Advertiser

ALDI has confirmed interest in opening a store in Albany in the future but says it has no current plans on the agenda, on the eve of opening of another regional WA store.

A spokeswoman for ALDI Australia said, “We have an interest in Albany and recognise its potential as part of our long-term expansion plans”.

“We have not committed to developing a store in the area at this stage, but will update the community as our plans progress,” she said.

Meanwhile, Bunbury shoppers will have more choice where to buy their groceries when ALDI opens its new store in Bunbury next week.

ALDI managing director of Western Australia Anna McGrath said they were excited to be opening the new store on Wednesday and she looked forward to showing residents the benefits of shopping at the supermarket.

ALDI Bunbury features a number of innovations that offer an enhanced shopping experience for customers. Features include expanded wooden produce bays, energy efficient chillers and a modern store design with sleek signage and point of sale displays.

As energy management remains a key priority for ALDI, the store has energy efficient LED lighting.

To celebrate the opening of ALDI Bunbury, there will be a number of unique special buys on offer to customers, which will not be available collectively in any other store.

A team of 15-20 permanent, full and part-time employees, are employed at ALDI Bunbury.

The new store is at 9 Edward Street, Bunbury and will open Monday to Sunday from 8:30am to 8pm.
