Aldi Nord is committed to the planned new construction of an additional market in Olpe. Customers can look forward to a modern branch with an even wider range of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and baked goods. Aldi Nord wants to expand the offer for its customers in Olpe and open a second market. After a long search, the site of the former Bauking-Baumarktes, In Trift 7, was found to be an optimal site. The new store is expected to open its doors in at the end of this year.
Aldi Nord has been conducting constructive talks with the city administration for a long time, which supports the project very much. “The interest of Olper citizens in a modern Aldi market is great, so we gladly supported the efforts of Aldi Nord,” explains Olpe Mayor Peter Weber. “The demolition permit for the hardware store currently located on the property is already available and the pre-construction request for the planned new building has been completed. The building application is currently being processed in parallel and should also be submitted in a timely manner, “says Franziska Chruschwitz, Head of Real Estate and Expansion at the responsible Aldi regional company Radevormwald.
As part of the modernization of the entire Aldi Nord branch network, the planned second Aldi market will be designed according to the new branch concept “ANIKo” (ALDI Nord Instore Concept). The focus of the new markets is above all on a bright and friendly shopping atmosphere with more space and wider aisles as well as an increased supply of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and baked goods. The new branches will also be equipped with a modern lighting, color and energy concept. In addition, around 100 customer parking spaces are planned for a relaxed shopping experience. Assuming an early completion of the approval process, the demolition work could start in the first half of 2019. In the best case, the new market could be opened by the end of the year. The existing Aldi market in Olpe at Westfälische Straße 94 will remain open regardless of the new construction plans. There are currently being reviewed modernization options.
