Middleton Aldi reopens after refurbishment and extension

Date published: 04 September 2021

The Aldi store on Kemp Street in Middleton reopened this week (Thursday 2 September), following a significant refurbishment and extension.

To celebrate the re-opening, Aldi Middleton arranged for Olympic gold medallist Gemma Gibbons to deliver a virtual assembly for pupils at Elm Wood Primary School as part of the supermarket’s initiative, Get Set to Eat Fresh – which has already inspired over 1.9 million school children aged five-14 years to learn more about the benefits of cooking fresh, healthy food with their families.

Team GB Judo star Gemma delivered an inspirational assembly focusing on the benefits of eating healthy food and the importance of exercise and believing in yourself. Gemma also talked to pupils about her experience of competing as an Olympian and shared her challenging training regime.

Gemma said: “I’ve had a fantastic time speaking with the children at Elm Wood Primary School. It was great to talk to them about the importance of eating healthily and how it can be fun to plan and prepare meals as a family. Hopefully I’ve also managed to inspire the pupils to keep active and try different sports.”

Store manager Paul Hevey said: “The team and I are really looking forward to welcoming back some familiar faces as well as new customers and supplying our local community with the everyday amazing products we have available. Hopefully the new look store will make shopping at Aldi Middleton that bit easier and more comfortable.”
