Aldi opens in Mundaring

MT HELENA resident Annemarie Jorden was amongst the first shoppers to wander the aisles of Aldi’s store in Mundaring on Wednesday.

The German emigrant joined a handful of eager shoppers who queued up waiting for the budget supermarket chain to open its doors.

“The specials are great and it’s always good to have another option to Coles or Woolworths,” she said.

“If I need a washing machine or a microwave I now no longer need to head down the hill to Midland.”

Caught browsing in the fruit and vegetable aisle, Swan Hills MLA Frank Alban said the Mundaring community was spoilt for choice and now had an added incentive to shop local.

“With red capsicums at $2.99 a kilo, my gardening days are over,” he joked.

“There is a good proportion of Australian made products and an excellent choice of fresh WA products, as well as some interesting bargains.

“It’s also an easy store to navigate, even for dads.”

An Aldi spokesperson said the Mundaring store opening was a great success.

“We were delighted to see strong interest from the local community on opening day,” she said.

“We know Aldi will be an attractive alternative for residents, offering unbeatable value on our range of high-quality products.”

Aldi will open up to 20 WA stores by the end of 2016, including a store in Wattle Grove.
