Supermarket giant Aldi has confirmed that the store they are soon due to commence building in Louth will be their biggest UK branch.

Final demolition works are taking place at the old Malt Kiln site in Newbridge Hill, which is due to be completed by the end of February.

The month of March will consist of site clearance and the building work to bring Louth the new store will officially begin in April, with the supermarket set to open in the Autumn.

The shop will have a sales area of 1,254 sq metres and will include over 100 parking spaces. Plus it will bring 50 jobs to the town with both full and part-time positions on offer.

Mark Taylor, property director for Aldi stores said: “We are delighted to bring a multi-million investment to the town, and the store will cost over £2million to build. I can confirm that Louth will have our largest UK store.

“We have been lucky with the overall cost for demolition which was quoted at £1million, but we have been able to spend just under half of the cost.

“We are in a win win situation as we have found the right spot to build our store and we are succeeding in the demolition of the Malt Kiln where others retailers/businesses have failed.”

Mark added: “Aldi has a strong focus and our stores present a great retail offer. We are aware that Asda may come to town, but we are confident with our unique offer. As a business we are doing very well after coming out with sales growth for the past four years and we continue to grow.

“Lincolnshire is an important area for us and the Louth store will be our 13th shop to open in the local area.”
