Aldi Corner Store opens in Newtown

Aldi has opened its latest Corner Store shopping experience in Sydney’s Newtown, featuring an artisan bakery as well as fresh, ready-to-go meals delivered daily.

The store boasts an innovative convenience-led layout offering visitors simple navigation, modern interior designs, and self-checkouts.

At the artisan bakery, Newtown shoppers can find Wild Origins artisan sourdough highlighting the product innovation unique to Aldi’s Corner Store, which combines modern convenience with the very best of NSW craftsmanship. The bakery boasts a wide variety of items – from baguettes to berry muffins, croissants and doughnuts.

Located at Newtown Central, the store includes Aldi’s wide selection of exclusive brand products, award-winning fresh produce as well as iconic Special Buys.

Huw Longman, Director of Aldi Corner Stores says it’s a thrill to bring Aldi to the Newtown community.

“It was pivotal to us that the design of this new store brought to life the culture and eclectic style of Newtown that locals know and love, which is why we’ve partnered with Charlie Nivison to produce bespoke in-store murals to delight our new local customers.

“The smaller format of our Corner Stores has given us the opportunity to bring Australia’s lowest prices to even more Aussies. The range and layout are designed to better meet the needs of our customers in high-density, urban areas just like Newtown.

“Shopping habits continue to evolve, and we are seeing a large audience of people who prefer shopping more frequently with a hyper-focus on convenience. The Aldi Corner Store is designed purposefully to meet these needs, taking convenience and creativity, and combining it with the kind of quality and savings that only Aldi can offer.”

Longman continues: “Last year alone, we delivered $3.1 billion in savings directly to customers. That’s real money back in the pockets of Australian families at a time when they need it most. Our business model is about saving people money and we will never be beaten on the price of the weekly shop. We look forward to welcoming Newtown shoppers to their Aldi Corner Store so they can enjoy our good different shopping experience for themselves.”

The Newtown location features a mural created by local artist Silly Pear A.K.A Charlie Nivison. His works feature a strong use of colour and appropriate comic book characters for graphic effect; they’re vivid, engaging, and powerful.

Nivison says: “I drew inspiration for this mural from music, technology, and pop culture. Newtown is one of the corner stones of culture and art in Sydney, so it was important to me that this mural resonated with the community and fit seamlessly into that vibrant, creative atmosphere.”
