Aldi will close its doors tonight as it undergoes a makeover.

The store on Low Road, Cockermouth, will be re-open to customers from February 27 at 8am.

The transformation is part of Aldi’s £300m investment into improving its stores across the UK, and offers increased space for fresh British meat and fish, an improved Food to Go section, and plenty of award-winning beers, wines and spirits.

Four new jobs have been created by the renovation, with an additional 26 members of the community already being employed at the store.

The new look is designed to make shopping easier, with a simpler layout and brighter aisles and customers can take advantage of the opening week offers next week.

Aldi Store Manager, Paul White said: “The store is looking fantastic, and we can’t wait to welcome our loyal customers back so they can see it for themselves.

“We know that the value and quality of our products is unbeatable, and we’re committed to making sure that the shopping experience each customer enjoys in our stores is on a par with the products and services they’re used to.

“We’ve got some great Specialbuy deals on, so we’re set for a busy opening week.”

The updated store has also been cleverly crafted to be as efficient as possible, allowing Aldi to continue to pass its low operating costs on to customers in the form of low prices.

An Aldi spokesman added: "We will close our Cockermouth store on February, 20, at 8pm to carry out refurbishment works.

“When we reopen on February 27, the store will be in our new layout, which ensures more space for fresh, chilled and food-to-go ranges as well as simpler layouts and brighter aisles.”
