ALDI has opened its bespoke Corner Store experience in Newtown, Sydney, opening a new location in the heart of the suburb at Newtown Central.

Located at 1/330 King Street, the store is custom-built, stocking an extensive range of ready-to-go meals, from sushi to sandwiches, as well as artisan bakery items. Customers can also shop ALDI’s selection of exclusive brand products, fresh produce and Special Buys.

ALDI Corner Stores director, Huw Longman said, “We are thrilled to be bringing ALDI to the Newtown community. It was pivotal to us that the design of this new store brought to life the culture and eclectic style of Newtown that locals know and love, which is why we’ve partnered with Charlie Nivison to produce bespoke in store murals to delight our new local customers.

“The smaller format of our Corner Stores has given us the opportunity to bring Australia’s lowest prices to even more Australians. The range and layout are designed to better meet the needs of our customers in high-density, urban areas just like Newtown.

“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.”

The Newtown store boasts an innovative convenience-led layout offering visitors simple navigation, modern interior designs, and self-checkouts. The Newtown location also features a unique mural created by local artist Silly Pear A.K.A Charlie Nivison. His works feature a strong use of colour and appropriate comic book characters for graphic effect.

“I drew inspiration for this mural from music, technology and pop culture. Newtown is one of the corner stones of culture and art in Sydney, so it was important to me that this mural resonated with the community and fit seamlessly into that vibrant, creative atmosphere,” Nivison said.
