First plans have emerged of the latest in a string of ALDI shops planned for metropolitan Perth, this time in the Fremantle suburb of Hilton.
ALDI plans to erect the pictured supermarket and 77 car bays between Victor and Ethelwyn Street, opposite South Street from an existing IGA.
The planned ALDI is now with the City of Fremantle which has been charged with making a recommendation on the project to a state assessment panel.
If eventually approved by the state panel, the Hilton ALDI will be built on the site of an existing local shopping centre that until recently housed the Hilton Fresh fruit and vegetable emporium, which ceased trading on February 22.
The shops also house a butcher store, hairdresser, newsagency, post office, King of Soul key cutter and cobbler, and the Sweet Ginger cafe which on weekends hosts a modern jazz band
ALDI claims its planned store will “add to the mix of retail offerings” in the area.
In eastern Australia, ALDI offers a more limited range of products (mostly under its own private label) than its Woolworths and Coles competitors.
The Hilton ALDI would have 1020sqm of floor space.
Anticipated opening times are 8am to 8pm weekdays, 8am to 5pm Saturdays and 11am to 5pm Sunday.
You can check out, and comment on, the planned Hilton ALDI here until May 15.
