Aldi to open in Waikiki next Wednesday

ALDI is opening in Waikiki next Wednesday, October 26.

The new store features grocery products, biweekly special buys, fresh fruit, vegetables and bread delivered daily.

Aiming to be the price leader in the market, Aldi confirmed WA shoppers will not pay higher prices compared to its stores on the east coast, for all products except fruit and vegetables due to regional sourcing.

“At Aldi Australia, we are committed to helping our customers stretch their grocery dollars further, without compromising on quality,” WA managing director Anna McGrath said.

Aldi Waikiki will follow the company’s new store format with redesigned shelving and expanded wooden produce bays, as well as energy efficient LED lighting and chillers.

“We have been listening to customer feedback on the eastern seaboard and believe these upgrades will make it even easier and more enjoyable for Western Australians to shop with us.”

The announcement follows Aldi’s recent store openings in Kwinana, Rockingham and Mandurah.

Aldi has committed to open up to 20 WA stores by the end of 2016, with a total of 70 stores planned for the state.

Aldi Waikiki is at Waikiki Village Shopping Centre on the corner of Read Street and Gnangara Drive.

The store will be supported by 15 to 20 employees.
