ALDI will officially open the doors to its new format store in Torquay North in less than a fortnight.
From 8.30am on October 3, the supermarket in Winki Way will offer award-winning grocery products and popular Special Buys, together with fresh fruit, vegetables and bread delivered daily.
“At Aldi, we are proud to call ourselves ‘Good Different’. We offer a supermarket experience that is like no other in Australia, and it’s our differences that allow us to bring unbeatable value to our customers every day,” an Aldi spokesperson said.
“We’re excited to be opening our new store in Torquay and look forward to showing local residents the difference ALDI can make to their wallets and lifestyles.”
Aldi Torquay features a number of recently introduced innovations, including better product displays, improved navigation and a modern interior store design.
New features include redesigned shelving, expanded wooden produce bays, as well as extended energy efficient chillers. As energy management remains a key priority for Aldi, the store has energy efficient LED lighting.
There will also be improved point-of-sale displays and store signage.
“While we’re delighted to be introducing these innovations, we want our customers to know they won’t lead to higher prices,” the spokesperson said.
“Low prices are a big deal for Aldi. In fact, we refuse to be beaten on price. This is our fundamental point of difference and one we will never give away.”
To celebrate the opening of Aldi Torquay, there will be a number of unique Special Buys on offer, which will not be available collectively in any other store.
Aldi’s Special Buys offer a highly diverse collection of products at low prices, across a range of categories such as skiing, gardening, cooking or entertaining.
They appear in store every Wednesday and Saturday, and customers are given a preview of the products one week before they are in store via ALDI’s catalogue, e-newsletter, app and website.
Aldi Torquay will be supported by a team of 15-20 permanent full and part-time employees.
The new store will be located at 14-18 Winki Way. Opening hours will be 8.30am-8pm Monday to Sunday.
