New Aldi officially opens its doors to queuing crowds of shoppers in Fulwood
Preston's newest Aldi store has officially opened its doors to shoppers in Fulwood this morning (August 1).
The supermarket is the first store to open at the new retail park in Oliver's Place, off Eastway, in Fulwood.
Management greeted a crowd of around 30 eager shoppers at the store's entrance, before the electric doors swung open for Aldi's first official day in Fulwood.
Within minutes, more than two dozen fleet-footed shoppers had filled the brightly-lit aisles in search of a bargain.
The store's management remain tight-lipped about special opening day deals, but it has revealed that its early-bird customers will have the chance to scoop some heavily reduced garden furniture.
