New Aldi Store Opens in North Lakes0
Local residents are set to enjoy high-quality products at permanently low prices and increased employment opportunities when ALDI officially opens the doors to its new format store in North Lakes tomorrow.
From 8.30am on Wednesday 1st August, ALDI North Lakes will provide the community with award-winning grocery products and popular Special Buys, together with fresh fruit, vegetables and bread delivered daily.
ALDI North Lakes will open as a freestanding store for the community, in addition to the existing ALDI North Lakes store located at Westfield North Lakes.
“At ALDI, we are proud to call ourselves “Good Different”. We offer a supermarket experience that is like no other in Australia, and it’s our differences that allow us to bring unbeatable value to our customers every day,” an ALDI spokesperson said.
“We’re excited to be opening our new store in North Lakes and look forward to showing local residents the difference ALDI can make to their wallets and lifestyles.”
The freestanding ALDI North Lakes store features a number of recently introduced innovations that will offer an enhanced shopping experience for customers, with better product displays, improved navigation and a modern interior store design.
New features include redesigned shelving, expanded wooden produce bays, as well as extended energy efficient chillers. As energy management remains a key priority for ALDI, the store has energy efficient LED lighting. There will also be improved point-of-sale displays and store signage.
“While we’re delighted to be introducing these innovations, we want our customers to know they won’t lead to higher prices,” an ALDI Australia spokesperson said. “Low prices are a big deal for ALDI. In fact, we refuse to be beaten on price. This is our fundamental point of difference and one we will never give away.”

To celebrate the opening of the new ALDI North Lakes, there will be a number of unique Special Buys on offer, which will not be available collectively in any other store. ALDI’s Special Buys offer a surprising and unexpected collection of products at unbeatable prices, across a range of categories like skiing, gardening, cooking or entertaining.
Special Buys have become incredibly popular with Australian shoppers and are just one way ALDI distinguishes itself from other supermarkets. They appear in store every Wednesday and Saturday, and customers are given a preview of the products one week before they are in store via ALDI’s catalogue, e-newsletter, app and website.
ALDI North Lakes will be supported by a team of 15-20 permanent full and part-time employees, providing a unique career opportunity in retail. Working conditions at ALDI are considered to be some of the best in the industry with employee benefits including salaries well above market rates, comprehensive training, an employee wellness program, and paid maternity leave.
The new store will be located at 48 North Lakes Drive, North Lakes. Opening hours will be 8:30am-8pm Monday to Friday, 8am-7pm Saturday and 9am-6pm Sunday.
