ALDI is celebrating its first year of operations in WA, and the supermarket chain shows no sign of slowing down with the announcement it will be hiring 250 staff to service its new stores.

On June 8 2016, ALDI opened its first WA stores in Kwinana, Belmont, Mirrabooka and Joondalup and it now operates 22 state wide.

Before the end of 2017 the German chain will add 11 stores to its network.

These include Lakelands (21 June), Spearwood (28 June), South Fremantle and Bunbury (July).

Other stores due to open this year include Banksia Grove, Busselton, Northam, Yokine and Currambine.

To support its growing network, ALDI will be hiring an additional 20 staff for its Jandakot Distribution Centre and 250 store staff to service its news stores.

State managing director Anna McGrath said the company had been embraced by the WA public.

“At Aldi, we like to stand out from the crowd,” she said.

“We offer a supermarket experience that is like no other in Australia, and it’s our differences that allow us to bring unbeatable value to our customers every day.

“As we celebrate our first full year of trade in Western Australia, we are proud to say that Western Australians have truly embraced the Aldi shopping experience, and we look forward to showing even more shoppers the difference ALDI can make to their wallets and their lifestyles.”
