Aldi ‘reaffirms commitment’ to building town store despite delay

A popular discount supermarket chain has reaffirmed its commitment to building a new store in a Lincolnshire town. Aldi is set to bring a new store to Holbeach after planning permission was granted in March this year - but works appear to have been slightly delayed.

Initial work was due to begin in August but has not yet started, with Aldi remaining "hopeful" that the work will still commence this year. The company says it is now "working hard" in preparation for demolition works at the previously council-owned site on Fleet Street.

At a net sales area of 1,315m², the new supermarket will offer 112 customer car parking spaces in total and bring around 40 jobs to the local community. Residents have already expressed[1] that the new store is "exactly what the town needs".

An Aldi spokesperson said: "Since securing planning permission in March 2023, Aldi has been working hard behind the scenes in preparation for commencing demolition works. We remain hopeful that these initial works will start this year.

"With the current cost of living crisis, now more than ever, customers are looking for better-value products to help their money go further and it is within this context that Aldi reaffirms its commitment to delivering a new store in Holbeach."
