Smithfield, in Adelaide’s northern suburbs, has become the 23rd SA location selected by the German discount supermarket chain which has plans to open up to 50 stores around the state.
Dubbing its shopping format an “experience”, Aldi announced plans to open the store on the corner of Warooka Drive and George McCullum Road in late 2016.
“Feedback from South Australian shoppers has shown they are becoming more and more curious about what we have to offer,” SA managing director Viktor Jakupec said.
“We’re keen to show South Australians the benefits Aldi brings, not only to their wallets, but also to their lifestyle.”
Last financial year, Aldi sold more than $129 million worth of grocery products from SA suppliers and more than $25 million in fresh fruit and vegetable produce sourced from local growers.
“Aldi already enjoys strong relationships with local farmers and manufacturers in South Australia and we are looking forward to expanding our relationships with these businesses,” Jakupec said.
“Our national growth will also offer increased opportunities to forge new relationships with local businesses, as part of our commitment to supporting Australia.”
Aldi has selected sites in West Lakes, Hawthorn, Mount Barker, Hallett Cove, Seaford Heights, Woodcroft, Victor Harbor, Parafield Gardens, Blakeview, St Agnes, Kilburn, Gilles Plains, Berri, Marion, Aldinga, Noarlunga, Modbury, Evanston, Nuriootpa, Golden Grove, Salisbury, Mount Gambier, Port Pirie and Yorke Peninsula.
