EXTRA jobs will be created at a Ramsbottom supermarket after a revamp.

Bosses at the Railway Street Aldi store say that, thanks to its recent refurbishment, it will now offer increased space for meat and fish, as well as health and beauty products, beers, wines and spirits and babycare products.

The store will also offer an enhanced food to go section offering salads, sandwiches and sushi.

Store manager Jonny Dauncey 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’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."

The refurbishment has been undertaken as part of Aldi's £500m 'Project Fresh' programme, which has seen other stores throughout the region already refurbished.

This project, which has been ongoing since 2018, aims to invest in improving the chain's stores across the UK is based on feedback gathered from more that 50,000 Aldi customers.

In Ramsbottom's case, the company says that the refurbishment should make shopping easier with more space and clearer signs.

Fresh bread and cakes have been moved to the last aisle, preventing them getting squashed under customers’ shopping, and the store will now offer new, easy to browse freezers. An 'Aisle of Aldi has been created for the store's 'specialbuys'.

The company says that the changes will also create additional jobs on top of the 25 already employed at the store.

The store will officially reopen on Thursday at 8am.
