Aldi Holmes Chapel Opening Thursday November 17th at 8am
Aldi are opening their new Holmes Chapel store this year, as most of you will know. They are developing a previously disused brownfield site on Manor Lane and as far as I am concerned, the arrival of Aldi is a very welcomed addition to Holmes Chapel, where food shopping options and local jobs are limited.
Aldi have confirmed that their target opening date for the store is now Thursday November 17th 2016 at 8am. Obviously this is subject to change should there be any unexpected developments but as I understand it, construction is well underway and fingers crossed, we’ll have a brand new Aldi open before christmas.
Stay tuned for further updates. What we now need are some exciting businesses to take over the currently empty spaces in the village centre. Ideally businesses that are going to inject a bit of life into the village and draw people in to the village centre but we can only hope.
Update 7/11/16 – We have checked again with Aldi via Twitter and the target opening date is now Thursday 17th November. This is still subject to final confirmation, but it’s not far off so hopefully fairly firm!
