Mundaring ALDI coming up



EXCLUSIVE: German retail giant ALDI has applied to build a $5 million discount supermarket in the Perth Hills hamlet of Mundaring.

The first pictures of the planned Mundaring Aldi come hot on the heels of recent revelations that ALDI also has designs on the outer Perth suburbs of Kwinana, Cannington an Southern River.

The pictured render of the Mundaring ALDI is now before a state assessment panel which at a meeting on July 23 will decide whether or not Mundaring gets a brand new, German-owned discount supermarket.

If approved, the planned ALDI will rise at 22-24 Hartung Street, and have a more rustic design than its planned counterparts on the Swan Coastal Plain.

Mundaring ALDI would have a gross floor area of 1610 sqm, wheelchair access and 87 car bays.

The planned ALDI has received six objections. One complainant questions the need for a third supermarket in leafy Mundaring, and is concerned the ALDI will lead to more traffic and noise.

Another local strongly objects, saying Mundaring ALDI will “ruin the character of the Mundaring Village which is defined by a quiet, relaxed lifestyle”.

The Shire of Mundaring has recommended that the state planning panel approve the Mundaring ALDI.

    We will still shop at Hills Fresh for all our fresh produce and the IGA for everything else.
    So apart from the fact that it appears to be an exceptionally ugly building (more suited to Wheatbelt railway marshalling yards) our shopping experience will remain the same (I hope). If another monster retailer causes the closing of Hills Fresh we too will switch to Midland or Swan View for our fresh produce. Hopefully the competition between the big unethical supermarkets will send them all broke. Unfortunately these predatory monsters seem to be able to thrive despite their continual, deliberate, destruction of our small local businesses.

    Coles and Woolworths have had it easy for too long. We pay so much for our weekly shopping, it is unfair. Aldi gives us all a chance to spend less. As for the site in Mundaring, the two houses are sandwiched between businesses anyway. I would much rather have an Aldis store than the two cheap take aways being Hungry Jacks and KFC. Welcome to Mundaring, we specialise in junk food. Argh. Welcome Aldis! I will stop paying high prices at Coles and shop with you gladly. But buy my fruit and Veg from Matt in Swan View, sorry, he sells great fruit and veg.

    How can competion be a bad thing regardless of what area it is in,is mundaring “too good” for discounts,think of others the majority of people want value for money,as for being foreign owned. So is the majority of things we buy,you can choose to shop there or not.

  8. Marina says:

    Yes!!! Mundaring needs competition and a leap into the future!

  9. Ben says:

    Why not have the Aldi in Midland? A lot more space to build plus more central for the swan community

  10. Cathy says:

    Bring on Aldi in Mundaring!!!

  11. Heather says:

    Well then it’s simple remove one of the monopolistic Coles and Woolworths stores and replace it with Aldi and then Mundaring is still leafy!!!
    Hi Heather – Which one would you prefer that the German-owned giant replace – WA-owned Coles or Australian-owned Woolies?
