THE FIRST Wokingham Aldi store is set to open in the town next month and Olympic rugby player Daniel Bibby will be cutting down the ribbon.

Daniel will be joined by store manager Craig Breadmore and his team for the official opening on Thursday, July 11.

Mr Bibby’s appearance is part of the supermarket’s partnership with Team GB, which is designed to help children to develop their understanding and love of fresh and healthy food.

Store Manager, Craig Breadmore, said: “We’re really looking forward to opening our new store in Wokingham. The team and I are working hard behind the scenes to get everything ready for the big day. It will be fantastic to have Daniel with us too, posing for photos and giving out bags of free fruit and vegetables to our new customers.”

The new store will bring several job opportunities to the borough and offer more customers access to Aldi’s products. The retailer aims to have 1,200 stores by 2025 and is committed to further improving its existing stores for its customers across the country.
