Improving choice for local people in Thames Ditton

 Unlike other supermarkets, Aldi is not a one-stop shop. Its smaller stores focus on packaged and convenience goods, complementing rather than competing with existing local shops and services.

There’s a lot to like

 Aldi’s philosophy of high-quality products at low prices that shoppers can trust has won many accolades. As customers continue to look for better-value brands to make their money go further, it is important that residents have access to a wide range of shopping facilities.

A new Aldi food store off Portsmouth Road would provide local people with award-winning, high-quality produce at great value prices, improving shopping choice for the community in Thames Ditton and complementing existing shops and services.

Local jobs

The new Aldi food store would create approximately 50 new jobs, including managerial positions. Aldi aims to provide flexible jobs for local people, and more employment opportunities would also be available through the construction of the development.

Aldi employees receive industry-leading wages above the National Living Wage, proven opportunities for career progression, high levels of training, and a guaranteed minimum of 20 hours’ work per week.

It is Aldi’s aim to recruit staff locally for its new stores and, as a result, most staff live close to the store where they work. More information on career opportunities can be found at:
