ALDI opens first store in North Queensland

ALDI has opened a new store at Willow’s Shopping Centre, Townsville, making it the first ALDI store in North Queensland.

The 1379sqm custom-designed storefront will have fresh produce delivered daily, 100 per cent Australian meat, as well as a range of innovations, including self-checkouts, a modern interior design, and a simple layout so customers can easily navigate the store.

Bronwyn Post, Managing Director, Queensland, ALDI Australia, said they know how much North Queenslanders have been looking forward to ALDI coming to the region.

“We know for many customers visiting ALDI Townsville, it will be their first time ever shopping in an ALDI store. There are a few small differences they may notice that separate us from other supermarkets such as our curated range of exclusive brands, streamlined operations, and our coin deposit trolleys.

“These differences allow us to cut out unnecessary costs and pass these savings on to customers. Last year alone, we delivered $3.1 billion in savings directly to customers. That’s real money back in the pockets of Australian families.”

Customers will be treated to ALDI’s iconic Special Buys aisle, with new products going on sale every Wednesday and Saturday, as well as an exclusive range of Special Buys for the grand opening, including a 10kg front load washing machine for $399 and a 32” Philips HD LED Android TV for $189.

“Our Price Promise remains the same from the day we opened our first store over 20 years ago – we won’t be beaten on the cost of your weekly shop. We look forward to welcoming the residents of Townsville to the store so they can discover the savings that can be made for themselves,” said Post.
