A PORT Glasgow supermarket will unveil a fresh look when it reopens to customers following a week-long refurbishment which involves more staff being taken on.

Aldi, in Gallagher Retail Park, closed on Friday for an upgrade project to offer more space within the shop.

Looking ahead to the reopening on Thursday morning, bosses say that additional jobs will be created, with 19 members of the local community currently employed in-store.

Store manager, Alice Haughton, 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.”

Standing at 1,120 sqm of retail space, the transformation is part of Aldi’s £600m investment into further improving its stores and services across the UK and is based on feedback from more than 50,000 customers.

The retailer says the improved format has been created to make shopping easier for Port Glasgow customers and the new-look store will now have more space and clearer signs to 'make shopping effortless'.

Fresh bread and cakes have been moved to the last aisle preventing them from getting squashed under customers’ shopping and the store will now offer new, easy to browse freezers.

The store will be open Monday-Saturday: 8am-10pm, and Sunday: 9am-8pm.
