January 14, 2021 BY

THE Aldi supermarket on the corner of Creswick Road and Doveton Street North will close on 20 January for three weeks as part of a major overhaul of the store.

Works will include redesigned shelves and product displays, increased fresh produce areas, improved navigation through the shop, modern styling and energy efficient chillers and LED lighting.

The upgrades are modelled on store designs already rolled out in South and Western Australia.

“While we’re delighted to be introducing these innovations, we want our customers to know they won’t lead to higher prices,” said a company spokesperson.

“At ALDI, we are proud to call ourselves Good Different. We offer a supermarket experience that is like no other in Australia, and it’s our differences that allow us to bring unbeatable value to our customers every day.”

With works set to start, and the store closing, from 3pm on Wednesday, 20 January the spokesperson said company’s Alfredton, Wendouree and Sebastopol locations would operate unchanged, while 15 to 20 full and part-time staff at the Ballarat site would be supported over the shutdown.

“We’re excited to be undertaking these upgrades and welcome the community to visit our new store from Wednesday, 10 February and share their feedback about the store experience,” the spokesperson said.
