ALDI has opened its first Victorian Corner Store in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD at 501 Swanston Street.
The Corner Store has been created to bring a curated ALDI experience to inner-city customers. It will stock an extensive range of ready-to-go meals from sushi to sandwiches as well as artisan bakery items in-store. The store will also feature many of ALDI’s iconic items including Special Buys. The store offers visitors modern interior designs, simple navigation and self-checkouts.
ALDI Corner Stores director, Huw Longman said, “ALDI’s Corner Stores have been designed to better meet the needs of our customers in high-density, urban areas. Shopping habits continue to evolve, and we are seeing a large audience of people who prefer shopping more frequently with a hyper-focus on convenience.
“The ALDI Corner Store is designed purposefully to meet these needs, taking convenience and creativity and combining it with the kind of quality and savings that only ALDI can offer. It’s a curated experience for inner-city Melbournians that puts convenience at the centre alongside ALDI’s renowned value.”
As a tribute to Melbourne’s renowned artistic community, ALDI Corner store has commissioned a mural from acclaimed Melbourne artist George Rose, who has brought-to-life her trademark blend of vibrant colours and abstract strokes.
