A new Aldi has opened in Tarleton this week, and here’s what shoppers can expect to find in the famous ‘middle aisle’.

Children at Tarleton Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School were tasked with creating a poster to show what healthy eating means to them. Anyika announced the winner during the assembly and the pupil was presented with their £20 voucher.

Store Manager Tony Breen said: “It was lovely to welcome our new customers into store, and I look forward to meeting more of the community in the coming weeks.

"I’m also thrilled that we’ve been able to support Tarleton Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School through our partnership with Team GB.”

How is the community benefitting?

Additionally, the new Aldi store is calling on local charities and food banks in Tarleton to register with Neighbourly, a community engagement platform that links businesses to charitable organisations in the local community.

Local charities that register will be able to collect surplus food and perishable products, such as fruit, vegetables and baked goods, up to seven days a week.
