officially inaugurated Tuesday evening in the presence of employees, elected officials of the City and regional directors of the group, the new store Aldi opened its doors to the public yesterday. Located at the edge of the Avenue de la Marne, the supermarket discounter has been completely shaved to be rebuilt. Totally different from the other supermarkets of this international group (4,750 stores in nine countries), the Passage building covers 1,400 m² including 999 m² of sales area (compared to 720 m² before the works).
“The Passage store represents our new 100% French concept with the presence of fruit and vegetables and bakery placed at the entrance. With the expansion of the sales area, we are offering an assortment up 20% and the arrival of national brands. We moved the car parks which have 64 places and added green spaces under the Alur law. The lighting is equipped with LED bulbs, we have three out of four faces that are lit by natural light, “says regional director Philippe Brasleret.
Opened in 2004, the Aldi store also had to strengthen its teams from nine to 14 employees. After the Passage-d’Agen store, the group has already programmed the renovation of the Castelculier store and announces the upcoming opening of a new sales outlet in the town of Boé.
Open every day, from 8:30 am to 8:00 pm, the Aldi store will open, from the beginning of May, on Sunday mornings from 8:30 to 12:30.
