SUPERMARKET giant Aldi has unveiled plans to open a new store at Minerva Point, Stourport.

Bosses at the discount supermarket chain say the plans will create new jobs, offer members of the public greater choice for their shopping and rejuvenate a vacant brownfield site within Stourport.

Aldi is now asking the community to have their say on the design and layout, as well as the proposed community benefits, before finalising the plans.

More than 2,000 letters have also been written to residents in the area inviting them to attend a virtual public exhibition by visiting

The virtual exhibition will run until Monday 1 November with a live chat feature hosted between 1pm to 5pm on Thursday October 28. People will be able to view the plans and provide their feedback via an online questionnaire.

A spokesman for Aldi said: “We are delighted to announce our plans to open a new Aldi food store in Stourport.

“Our plans to invest here in Stourport will create around 50 new local high paid jobs as well as many more in the construction and supply chains. Regenerating a vacant brownfield site will provide local people with more choice for their weekly food shop in an easy to access store.

“We are now keen to hear from local people about their views on our proposal and would urge locals to visit our virtual exhibition.”

As well as attending the virtual exhibition by visiting the project website, people can provide feedback by contacting the project team on Freephone information line number 0800 298 7040 or emailing
