New Aldi planned for Sedgley

Posted on:

Retail giant Aldi will begin work on a new 20,000 sq ft supermarket in Sedgley later this year.

The UK’s fourth largest supermarket was granted planning permission earlier this year to build on the former Goulds Electrical site in Bilston Street.

The Dudley Council-run car park next door will close tomorrow (June 1) to facilitate the development, and it is hoped the supermarket will be open for shoppers in 2024. The new Aldi will have 90 car parking spaces and offer free parking for customers.

Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of the council, said:

We want to make people aware that the council car park in Bilston Street will be shut from tomorrow so they can make alternative arrangements where necessary.
This is fantastic news for Sedgley – it will create jobs, give residents an extra place for their food shop and also attract people into the village where they will hopefully visit other shops and businesses.

Aldi is one of Britain’s fastest-growing supermarkets, with over 990 stores and around 40,000 members of staff.

It is the UK’s Cheapest Supermarket, according to consumer champion Which? (March 2023) as well as being named the UK’s Cheapest Supermarket for 2021 and 2022.
