Olympic ace helps Aldi take a bow
An Olympic athlete was in Chatteris to open up the town’s new supermarket.
Team GB archer Bradley Denny cut the ribbon of the Aldi store on Thursday.
Aldi has renovated and extended the former Co-operative store in Bridge Street, which closed last year.
More than 130 shoppers went along to the 8am opening in the hope of bagging a big prize within a golden enveloppe.
Aldi also unveiled the winning poster from its school poster competition. The artwork was created by Logan Brookes from Glebelands Primary School, who walked away with a Tablet PC for his efforts.
The supermarket will be making a £100 donation and a product donation to the 2nd Chatteris Scout Group, along with supporting Chatteris in Bloom.
Store manager Vicky Jones was delighted with the response to the grand opening.
She said: “My team and I very much enjoyed welcoming our new customers to the store and the turn-out was fantastic, with 100 people walking away with a golden ticket prize.
“We hope the shoppers enjoyed our opening morning celebrations and I would like to thank everyone for their support. We are looking forward to supporting the 2nd Chatteris Scout Group and Chattering in Bloom in the coming weeks.”
The store has created 35 jobs for the local community and Aldi is still recruiting for a variety of roles. For more information go to www.aldi recruitment.co.uk
