The first 100 shoppers at a new Aldi store in Northampton will be given the chance to win televisions, a Dyson vacuum cleaner and lots of other prizes.

Aldi will be opening its new store in Kingsthorpe tomorrow (Thursday November 26) at 8am.

The store will be officially opened by store manager Lisa Thomas and Kingsthorpe Jets FC, who will take part in a ribbon cutting ceremony as part of Aldi’s sponsorship of the under 7s team, which has provided match day kit for the football season.

The first 100 shoppers in the queue will be handed a golden envelope, each containing a special prize. Lucky customers will be in with the chance of winning a 55” HD TV, a 40” HD Ultra 4k TV, a Dyson DC30 vacuum cleaner and a variety of other prizes. Aldi will also be sampling a range of food products throughout the opening day.

Standing at 5,825 sqft, the store has created 70 new jobs for the local community and is currently recruiting for a number of roles.

The store will also be supporting Kingsthorpe Primary School, by donating food hampers for their Christmas raffle.

Aldi store manager, Ms Thomas said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming our customers into the store after the seven-month project. I’d like to thank the local community for their patience during this time and hope they enjoy their new look store.”
