ONE of Aldi's supermarkets in Herefordshire will be closed for five days as it undergoes a refurbishment.

The budget supermarket chain said its Ross-on-Wye shop, in Brookend Street, would shut at 8pm on Friday, March 3.

The chain, which also has shops in Ledbury, Hereford and Leominster, said the work will see a new layout introduced.


The supermarket, which opened in the town in 2014, will reopen on Thursday, March 9, a spokesperson said.

They said the new layout will mean more space for fresh, chilled and food-to-go ranges.

Hereford Times:

"It will be much brighter with simpler layouts and wider aisles," the spokesperson said.

"We will keep the community updated on developments.”

The discount supermarket chain was opened at 8am on October 30, 2014, with the help of local scouts and Ross Junior FC.


As part of the supermarket’s community engagement strategy, it had sponsored the football team’s kit and also presented a cheque to the Ross-on-Wye Scout Group.

There was a family fun day at the shop the next day, which included Halloween goodie bags, a balloon modeller and face painting.

The opening created 40 jobs in the area and Aldi was also recruiting for a further five members of staff at the time.
