Progress made on Kidbrooke Aldi store

Work is now well underway on converting the former Homebase in Kidbrooke to an Aldi supermarket.

Plans were submitted in February 2019 after Homebase collapsed and sold many branches. The green lives on in places – for now:

The building is not being completely flattened but altered.

Another shop is planned alongside Aldi though no tenant has yet been revealed.

The store will benefit from over 5,000 homes from Kidbrooke Village when that completes – and potentially another 600 from a TfL-owned site if they win approval after Greenwich Council rejected plans.

  • I believe Aldi are hoping to open the new Kidbrooke new store sometime in November. I think Aldi and the neighbouring store when that also opens will be very popular. With resident from the nearby Kidbrooke Village and the wider Kidbrooke area. Including residents from the many housing estates off of Rochester Way.

  • I live near the Heath. I can’t wait for Aldi to open in kidbrooke. My life is made so difficult because there is nowhere local to do shopping. I suffer disabilities and by the time I get to the shops in Charlton I struggle to stand long enough to complete my shopping.
    I am so elated and this can’t come soon enough. I am sure there are many people in and around the area who feel the same. WELCOME ALDI:)
