Aldi has refused to reveal when their new till-free store in the Greenwich town centre will open.

The popular supermarket remains tight-lipped about when residents can expect the new, Amazon-style shop to swing open its doors.

There have been many local rumours about when shoppers could see inside the store, with reports initially claiming the store was due for a late October opening.

But this date passed without any announcement, despite the excitement of locals.

Staff at the site were secretive and gave nothing away when the Local Democracy Reporting Service visited.

The supermarket will be the first Aldi to trial the “checkout free” structure which contains “a system of cameras, sensors and artificial intelligence to identify the items customers take from shelves, alleviating the need to go through a checkout”.

This follows Amazon opening six Amazon Fresh stores in the capital which gives Londoners the chance to “just walk out with shopping”.

Tesco are also set to open a store of a similar nature.

The Aldi was given the green light by Greenwich Council in January, replacing the Poundstretcher which had been there before.

The German chain has announced they will be opening 10 more stores “within the M25” in the UK before the end of the year.

The first Aldi store popped up in the UK in 1990 before the brand expanded massively across country.

There are now 700 Aldis across the UK, with many customers keen on the brand’s cut-price deals.

Aldi were contacted for comment and an opening date but refused to say when the store would open.
