Aldi’s newly extended Stanground store was welcomed by over 100 customers.
Store Manager James Huett and Councillor David Over, Mayor of Peterborough, officially re-opened the store in Whittlesey Road.
The first 100 customers in the queue were given golden envelopes containing a range of prizes and Chris Coverdale took home the star prize, a 32” HD TV, after queuing from 5am.
The store, which has been extended by more than 350square metres, is celebrating the re-opening with a product donation to Woodston Primary School’s Christmas Fair.
The store now stands at 1,350 square metres and is supported by 80 car parking spaces and contains 1,600 product lines.
The extension has also created an additional 20 jobs for the local area, and more information on all store roles at Aldi can be found at: www.aldirecruitment.co.uk.
The store now has 70 members of staff, making it one of the largest in the UK.
Store manager, James Huett, said: “It was fantastic to see so many people attend the re-opening of our store, and we would like to thank everyone for their patience over the last three months.
Mr Huett added: “Aldi is proud to support the local community and we are looking forward to supporting the Woodston Primary School’s Christmas Fair next month.
He said: “We hope that everyone in Peterborough enjoys their new-look Aldi store.”
