New Aldi opens in Willenhall
Olympic Gold Medallist, Katherine Copeland, and MP for Walsall North, Eddie Hughes, officially opened the new Aldi store in Willenhall.
The Willenhall store is the third Aldi to open in Walsall and will be run by store manager, Mark Yates, along with a team of 40 colleagues from the area.
As part of Aldi’s Get Set To Eat Fresh campaign, which hopes to inspire 1.2 million school children aged five to 14 learn more about the benefits of cooking fresh, healthy food with their families, Katherine gave away complimentary bags of fresh fruit and vegetables from Aldi’s famous Super 6 range to the first 30 customers in the queue.
The new store located on Coppice Farm Way will offer large chillers and freezers dedicated to fresh, British meat products, a ‘Food to Go’ section at the front of the store, a fixture along the back wall showcasing Aldi’s beers, wines and spirits, and health and beauty products.
Aldi store manager, Mark Yates, said: “It’s been a fantastic morning here at our grand opening. It was lovely to meet our new customers and I look forward to meeting more of the community in the coming weeks. I’d also like to say a big thank you to the wonderful Katherine Copeland for being a part of our celebrations.”
Team GB star, Katherine Copeland, added: “It’s been an honour to be a part of Aldi’s store opening. I’ve had a great time talking to both the adults and children of Willenhall about healthy eating and my experience of the Olympics.”
The new store will be open Monday to Saturday 8am to 10pm and Sunday 10am to 4pm.
