Aldi to create up to 150 jobs at new store and training centre in North Liverpool
  • JohnJohn
    Discount retail giant Aldi will create up to 150 new jobs at its new multi-million pound store and training centre in North Liverpool.

    The development in Lorenzo Drive, Norris Green, will also include a number of smaller retail units occupied by sandwich chain Subway, The Vet, Penny Cards, and Robert Sealey shoe shop.

    The deputy Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Roz Gladden, will officially open the store on Thursday this week and to celebrate the occasion Aldi will be handing out golden envelopes to the first 100 people in the queue, each containing a prize.

    Customers will be in with the chance of winning a 32” full HD LED TV, a tablet PC, a smartphone and a range of bags of Aldi shopping. Hot food catering will also be available.

    Aldi Norris Green store manager, Barry Williams, said: “The team is looking forward to welcoming customers to our new store in Norris Green and we would like to thank them for their patience throughout the development.

    “There will be plenty of prizes up for grabs and we hope that customers enjoy the golden ticket experience, as well as the reduced ‘Specialbuys’ on offer.”

    Aldi will also be donating a range of food and household products to the nearby Norris Green Youth Centre later this month.

    The new training centre will create an ‘in-store’ environment for staff and apprentices to learn new roles and develop skills which includes a mock store.

    It will provide training for up to 100 staff and apprentices each year for the Merseyside area.

    George Brown, property director at Aldi, added: “Aldi is proud of its recruitment and training programme, which recognises talent and commitment, providing on average higher wages than those across the industry.

    “Our academy and new store will create around 150 local jobs combined, with additional roles created by the new retail units.”
