Aldi should open on Crayford Island later this year - as work to build the store begins this month (January 27).

The new 18,200 sqft supermarket will be the prime focus of the development in Roman Way - which will sit adjacent to the Tower Retail Park, and just over the road from Sainsbury's.

There will be 157 parking spaces on the site, and other smaller retail buildings.

Planning permission for the store was passed last year, and Aldi hope to open in November.
