The new store has been long-awaited and it opened its doors for the first time yesterday at a special red-ribbon event. It is located on Myrekirk Road and it was officially opened by Olympic bronze medal-winning curler, Victoria Chalmers.
Victoria said: “It’s been an honour to be a part of Aldi’s store opening.
And she added : “I’ve had a great time talking to both the adults and children of Dundee about healthy eating and my experience of the Olympics.”.
With the other premises in the Stack Retail Park and on Arbroath Road at Craigiebank, the Myrekirk store is the third Aldi to open in the City of Discovery.
Robert Stoddart, the supermarket giant’s property director, said: “We have been very encouraged by the grant of our liquor licence and are now focused on delivering our pledge to invest in a new Aldi store for the Charleston community and other shoppers in Dundee.”
