SUPERMARKET Aldi is set to open a new store, creating new jobs, on St Helens Retail Park.

This is part of Aldi’s £300m investment to convert its existing stores into its more customer-focused layout, and each upgrade will create additional jobs in the community.

Ruth Doyle, Regional Managing Director for Bolton at Aldi UK said: “We’ve set out ambitious plans for this year and we’re investing heavily across the North West to ensure even more people in the region can shop and save closer to home.

“We have a fantastic team across the area and this means we can grow and offer even more employment opportunities for local people.

“We’re excited to see how the stores develop over the next few months and I would encourage local people to keep an eye out for recruitment opportunities.”

Aldi colleagues receive a minimum rate of £9.10 per hour, regardless of age, as of February 1, with store assistant salaries rising to £10.41.
