Work starts on new huge Aldi in Barrow

Published on: Thursday 9th August 2018

A huge new Aldi on an out-of-town centre retail park will allow the discount supermarket to compete with the likes of Asda and Tesco, a regeneration expert has said.

Work to fence off and prepare the combined former Dreams and B&M Bargains units at Hollywood Retail Park has now started after Aldi was granted permission to open a new store. Store assistant and assistant manager jobs are also now being advertised.

Aldi already has two other supermarkets in Barrow - one in Risedale Road and another at Hindpool Retail Park, close to the site of the new store. The Hindpool Retail Park store will close once the new supermarket opens.

When Aldi moves into the new unit Hollywood Retail Park will be fully-occupied with other retailers on the site including TK Maxx, Dunelm Mill, Vue Cinemas, Nuffield Gym, Pizza Hut, McDonald's, KFC and Apollo Bingo.

Although an opening date has not yet been revealed Aldi said it will take place in the first half of 2019.
