After enjoying record-breaking Christmas figures, the popular chain is going from strength to strength, vowing to give customers the "Aldi of the future' when the store reopens at 8am on Thursday 23 January.

The Buckshaw branch opened in 2016, when GB Taekwondo athlete Bianca Walkden was joined by Alex Harrison aged 11 from the Buckshaw Village Scouts and manager Shaun Durkin to cut the ribbon to let the very first shoppers through the door.

New easy to see freezers, health and beauty, fresh bread, beers, wines and spirits and easier navigation will all feature in the refreshed outlet.

In the meantime, alternative stores are available at Harper's Lane, Chorley, Towngate, Leyland, and Cuerden Way, Bamber Bridge.
