The Aldi supermarket on Brook Way, Bradley Stoke has reopened today (Thursday 24th May) following a four-day closure for refurbishment.

The store, which is accessed via Ferndene, has undergone a transformation to improve customers’ convenience and overall shopping experience.

Standing at 960sqm, a more customer-focused layout allows for the products customers know and love to be found more easily, while browsing new ranges.

The transformation is part of Aldi’s £300m investment into improving its stores and service across the UK, and is based on feedback from more than 50,000 customers.

The format of the store reflects proven customer behaviours, and includes developments such as:

  • New and improved chillers and freezers including a ‘Food to Go’ section at the front of the store
  • Increased space dedicated to fresh, British meat products
  • Relocation of fresh bakery items to the final aisle, so products don’t get squashed under shopping
  • Relocation of Beers, Wines and Spirits into a dedicated fixture along the back wall, showcasing our award winning products
  • A dedicated section full of award-winning Health & Beauty products

Aldi store manager Tony Vanstechelman said:

“The store is looking fantastic, and we can’t wait to welcome our loyal customers back so they can see it for themselves.”

Opening hours are 8am-10pm Mon-Sat and 10am-4pm on Sundays.

New greengrocer now trading at Willow Brook

Posted on Monday 24th October 2016 at 1:55 pm by SH (Editor)

Opening day (Monday 24th October 2016) for the Jimmy Deane's Fruit, Veg & Salad stall in the town square at the Willow Brook Centre, Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

Just in time for half-term, Jimmy Deane’s Fruit, Veg & Salad has today (Monday 24th October) commenced trading in the town square at Bradley Stoke’s Willow Brook Centre.

Jimmy Deane’s will be open every Monday, Friday and Saturday, selling a full range of fresh produce with stock carefully selected by hand to ensure the best quality.

The local greengrocer has several thriving pitches around the South West including Yate Shopping Centre, Bath, UWE Bristol and Devizes.

Owner Jimmy, 36, says:

“We pride ourselves on providing fresh, quality produce with value for money every day. I am really excited about bringing what we do to Bradley Stoke to help keep the town healthy. It’s really important to eat fresh and we believe that everyone should have the option of getting their fruit and veg locally and independently.”

The business was founded by Jimmy’s father in 1970 and has been going strong ever since. With many years of experience, Jimmy says they are able to give “valuable advice and a friendly and personal service to customers”.

“The competition from the bigger retailers is really tough now, but we continue to work hard and adapt the way we work to keep our customers coming back. We hope this will continue here in the town.”

Pop along to the stall between 8am and 5pm Monday, Friday and Saturday to see for yourself!
