ALDI reveals opening dates for new stores

First published on TheShout, written by Andy Young.

Aldi Australia this week has given an update on its ongoing plans for expansion of the store network, providing a list of eagerly anticipated openings [opening dates updated below] in locations across the Eastern seaboard, South Australia and Western Australia.

The German retailer said that it will be expanding on its current network of 473 stores across the country and that it is “eager to bring the ALDI difference to more Australians”.

“In addition to ALDI stores already opened this year, we can confirm plans to open in the following locations across the Eastern seaboard, South Australia and Western Australia,” a spokesperson for Aldi Australia said.

“In New South Wales, new stores will open in Hillsdale, Wetherill Park, Macarthur Square, Narellan, Riverwood and Maitland. In Queensland, new locations include Drewvale, Caboolture and Coorparoo. The next stores to open in Victoria are Campbellfield, Bell Park, Tarneit Central, Gladstone Park, Springvale and The Glen.

“In South Australia, there are plans to open in Kensington Park, Adelaide Airport, Aldinga, Victor Harbor, Ingle Farm and Nuriootpa. New store locations in Western Australia include Spearwood, South Fremantle, Bunbury, Banksia Grove, Busselton, Northam, Yokine and Currambine.”

The spokesperson also said that all of the new stores will be built to the new format the retailer is using in Australia, which is aimed at creating a better shopping experience.

“Each of these stores will follow our new format, with clearer signage, redesigned shelving and expanded wooden produce bays, energy efficient LED lighting and extended chillers. This will allow for a more pleasant and efficient shopping experience, while also catering for an expanded range across our fresh meat, produce and health categories.

“While the new format means a better shopping experience for customers, it won’t lead to higher prices. We look forward to helping even more shoppers discover the benefits ALDI can bring to their wallets and their lifestyles.”

  14. Julie October 31, 2017 at 10:28 pm #

    When will Aldi come to Narooma Nsw?
    There is only a Woolworths in Narooma and they need some competition, they are so expensive. They are ripping us off here. The small IGA store advertise products on sale in their catalogue that they don’t stock.
    I would shop at Aldi if there was one in Narooma.

    when are you opening a store in port Pirie or Augusta in SA we only have coles and WW they need a shake up and aldi can do that instead of us having to travel 300kms to the nearest store

  20. Jill ross November 18, 2017 at 3:31 pm #

    I like to know why your Aldi store busselton Western Australia is one 1/3 the size of any of your stores . We all been waiting with great excitement for our store here . The store is only 1/3 the of perth store. Prices no better that coles or woolies and home applicants choice the very little choice be one or 2 lines. Why do you think we don’t notice this . I thought your company offered big discounts but not in busselton Western Australia . We not stupid just because we live in the country .target has also gone this road and most of my friends avoid buying there of no choice and most time they don’t have what you need so do this to country clients is really bad choice

    as have asked before we are a seaboard town very large we have a lot of fresh food producers around who have to send most of what they grow to brisbane market before it comes all the way back up be sold back to us at much inflated prices.we are bigger by far than kingaroy and that shop it would here.our town is 2 hundred thousand plus and very secure and growing at a fast rate .we have a lot of tourists and we would all benefit from competition your stores offers

  22. Catie December 1, 2017 at 8:13 am #

    Please consider FNQ. North QLd we are desperate for an ALDI store. PLEASE!!!!

  23. Ran December 5, 2017 at 9:47 pm #

    Hi, its been a sign saying that aldi is opening soon in Wetherill park nsw but its been ages and haven’t opened yet! Anyone know when they say opening soon how long does it take its i think about a year or more still is this sign 😂

  24. Jack December 8, 2017 at 10:43 pm #

    The people of Castlemaine are desperate for an Aldi. We are a large town in Central Victoria with only two IGAs. Whenever it is discussed on our local FB site, there is overwhelming support. We need competition!

  25. joanna December 13, 2017 at 6:12 am #


  26. Nettie December 18, 2017 at 5:56 pm #

    If ALDI opened yet in Market Town at Wetherill Park? The opening soon has been up for 2yrs now.

  27. Carol December 20, 2017 at 9:07 pm #

    Seconding the need for Castlemaine. Are the rumors true?

  28. bec December 21, 2017 at 5:19 pm #

    Cairns needs an ALDI!!!!!!!! It will be a big success.

  29. Samantha January 12, 2018 at 4:00 pm #

    FNQ need aldi. Im in Tolga on the Atherton Tablelands and we have 45,000 residnets up here and aldi would be a massive hit. Especially in Mareeba. My only option is woolies or IGA and both are so expensive at the best of times. Coles are in Mareeba but cant justify travelling there as i spwnd the same at woolies. But if Aldi was in Mareeba i would travel. Alsi was my go too in SA and SEQ.. please bribg Aldi to FNQ

  30. Adrian January 27, 2018 at 1:05 am #

  37. Fiona March 9, 2018 at 2:49 pm #

    Come on ALDI, make a difference….open stores in Tasmania – Hobart & Launceston. It’s a supermarket duopoly here with some of the highest prices in Australia and no competition or choice. Don’t miss the opportunity with all the tourism & growth happening in the state now !

  38. Robyn Hopkins March 15, 2018 at 11:33 am #

    Cairns – Townsville – Mackay -Whitsundays – Rockhampton – Charters Towers Are in desperate need of an ALDI store. These areas are growing at huge rates with mining, tourism, farming ever expanding. Give the North Queensland residents and tourists some real choice and competition please. It is way overdue. ALDI management should prioritise regional centres

    Hi aldi,, I know alot of people want an aldi and there are already a few on the central coast of NSW but I really want one in Morisset its the perfect spot to put one theres alot of development going on and many new houses, alot of people to buy your goods,, hope you put one in theres a few nice places that you could easily do that ok good luck Aldi!!!!!

  66. Wilgara May 26, 2019 at 8:20 am #

    Seems to be a lot of comments here but no responses from Aldi, who knows if they even read them. But for what it’s worth, I think it is time for us to have an Aldi in Tasmania, preferably one in Launceston and one in Hobart, but I would travel if there was only one and I know a lot of other people would too.

    I have read your excellent post. This is a great job. I have enjoyed reading your post first time. I want to say thanks for this post. Thank you.

    We REALLY want & need an Aldi store in Tumut NSW please.

  70. Jess Mallyon July 30, 2019 at 10:01 am #

    I agree with other commenters , Bring Aldi to Tasmania, I understand that the shipping cost’s would be higher but I do believe that the sales Aldi would make in Tasmania would honestly far out weigh the shipping cost to bring things here . Even if one store was only opened in Hobart I would travel monthly from Launceston to shop at Aldi as it still would save me money.

  71. jayne July 30, 2019 at 11:42 am #

    Aldi much needed in Cairns.
    Please hurry.

  72. Chris July 30, 2019 at 11:43 am #
