SEVERAL new Aldi Australia supermarkets will open in the City of Armadale over the next few years.
Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said an Aldi supermarket in Harrisdale was expected to open mid-2016. It will become part of a district town centre which is currently been developed.
“This is great news for the residents of our rapidly expanding communities in the City’s western suburbs of Harrisdale and Piara Waters,” he said.
The discount supermarket chain has also applied for a liquor-store licence so it can sell alcohol from its Harrisdale supermarket.
If it is successful, it is likely to be the first supermarket in WA to sell alcohol.
Its application is currently with the Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor.
An Aldi supermarket is also under construction in Camillo and is also due to open in 2016.
An Aldi Australia spokesperson said the company was eager to bring a unique shopping experience to more Australians.
“We are excited to be expanding into Western Australia from 2016 with plans to open up to 70 stores in the coming years.”
“We are planning to have several stores.
“We are also considering an option in Armadale city centre.”
The spokesperson said ALDI Australia sells liquor on the east coast, but a decision to introduce ALDI Liquor to WA had not yet been made.
