Aldi is set to celebrate the opening of its new Thamesmead store next week.

The store is set to open at 8 am on January 30, in Central Way.

The first 30 customers will receive a complimentary bag of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Aldi’s legendary special buys will be available every Thursday and Sunday, offering cheap value on a wide range of products.

The store will have an exclusive section for beauty products, a 'food to go' section and a large section for alcohol.

Gold Medallist, Tom Ransley is set to cut the ribbon on opening morning.

Aldi Store Manager, Brett Kavanah-Early, said:

“We can’t wait to open the doors to the new store on Central Way.

“It’s set to be a special day as we’ll be celebrating the opening of Aldi’s first store in the area and having Olympic hero, Tom Ransley, join us will make it a morning to remember.”

Rowing star, Tom Ransley, said:

“I’m so excited to be opening Aldi’s new store, it will be great to chat to customers and a lovely way for me to thank Aldi for its endless support of Team GB.”
