On Thursday, ALDI, one of the leading food retailers in Europe, opened a new store in Torrevieja, creating 12 new jobs. The opening ceremony was attended by Town Council representatives headed by José Manuel Dolón, Mayor of Torrevieja. The store is located at Avenida de las Cortes Valencianas, 1.

Comprising a shop floor area of 1,400 m² and with 118 parking places, it is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 9.30 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays.

At ALDI stores, customers will find a wide assortment of items in the following categories: Food, Household, Health and Beauty, and Special Buys.

The chain offers a full shopping experience with over 1,500 in-store items covering all the family’s everyday needs: fresh, packaged, regional, and organic. In addition, ALDI offers its customers an assortment of own-label products that are already successful in many European countries. So, ALDI offers the option to purchase top-quality products at the best prices.

Present at the opening of the new store was the Mayor of Torrevieja, José Manuel Dolón, who, after the opening speeches, cut the ribbon to open the new facility. ALDI Expansion Manager, Vicent Claramunt, stressed the chain’s commitment to Torrevieja, trusting that the new store would have a great acceptance, offering its inhabitants a new purchasing option.

On the opening day, the supermarket was visited by many customers making their first purchases, as well as taking part in the activities and promotions organized for the occasion. And to encourage them to see for themselves the quality of the wide range of products sold by the chain, they were able to taste dishes made with ALDI products, being invited to participate in an opening promotion in which they could win baskets of products and shopping vouchers.

The new store is part of ALDI’s development plan in the Community of Valencia, where it now has 53 stores, 31 of them in the province of Alicante. The new ALDI store will contribute to the economic revitalization of the town, with the creation of 12 new jobs, being committed to employing local staff.

Just a little way down the N332 the second major outlet to reopen was the eagerly awaited Lidl store that has now been completely rebuilt since it closed down late last year.  This too opened on Thursday when it enjoyed large crowds of shoppers who were eager to sample it’s wares.

The two stores have both been given a warm welcome by the general public and they clearly demonstrate the confidence that the retail sector now has in the local area.
