A plan to open a new branch of Aldi in Greenwich has been approved this week by Greenwich Council.
The store will be in the former Poundstretcher site at 245-247 Greenwich High Road which closed earlier this year. Before that is was a Budgens, co op, and a Somerfield.
Aldi have another branch just east in Charlton though in quite a different environment at Brocklebank retail park. This Aldi Local is an area of high footfall and numerous homes in the near vicinity.
The first UK Aldi Local opened in Balham in 2019. They generally stock fewer heavy items as many visitors will not arrive by car. They’ll be plenty more local custom in coming years with numerous housing developments including new homes at the former police station site and hotel at the former Magistrates’ Court approved in June 2020.
Another block on the junction of Greenwich High Road and Norman Road is well on the way to completion.
Plans can be seen here.
