Plans are well advanced for a new ALDI store to open in Byron Bay.

An ALDI spokesperson told Echonetdaily they are still fitting out the old Spar supermarket at the corner of Byron and Fletcher streets with the intention of opening in the middle of the year.

They expect to employ 10 to 15 staff and are encouraging local residents to apply for positions via the company’s careers website.

They also said that the store will align itself with their other supermarkets in Australia.

‘ALDI offers consistent, national pricing across all its stores, meaning customers pay the same at any ALDI regardless of where they live,’ said the spokesperson.

‘Our Byron Bay store will include standard features such as wider shopping aisles for easy navigation and long checkouts to ensure quick processing.’

Plastic bag free

ALDI say they offer a core range of more than 1,000 exclusively branded goods but will sell local produce.

‘In addition to our core range, ALDI offers weekly special buys which can include anything from televisions to homeware to clothing, and our fruit and vegetables are sourced locally where possible to ensure freshness, quality and value.’

Of interest to many shoppers in the area will be the omission of plastic bags at the checkouts.

‘We are proud of our plastic bag policy. We are the only major grocery retailer in Australia who refuses to offer free plastic bags nationwide, and we have done so since day one. We encourage customers to bring their own shopping bags, or alternatively they can purchase a re-useable bag from our stores.’
