There will also be free bacon and sausage sandwiches available for customers throughout the morning, and Aldi will be sampling a range of products throughout the day.

The opening of the store will create 50 new jobs for the local community.

As part of Aldi’s engagement with the local community, the brand new store will be supporting a number of groups, including the Hampton Community Sport Association who will be presented with a donation at the store opening to help continue its valued work within the community.

The store will also provide Hampton Tiddlers with a product donation, providing the parent and toddler group with a selection of the supermarket’s products.

In conjunction with the opening, local primary school children have taken part in a poster competition. The winning school will receive a monetary prize, with the winning child receiving an exciting prize from Aldi and their poster displayed in the store window during opening week.
