Aldi on Coppice Farm has written to Mary and I pointing out that they have had their plans validated by Walsall MBC and that they are now out consulting residents.
They tell us that they had distributed a community newsletter to 1,996 households and businesses in surrounding areas to their future store.
They tell us that they had very strong support, for their proposals for Aldi. Which will lead to an on- going programme to rebuild a high quality carefully designed store. They will be employing around 40 workers in full or part time jobs, when it opens.
So it looks like the local economy is going to get a much needed boost!
It also means that our Wednesfield residents living in Coppice Farm will get a highly prized award winning discount food retailer, right on their doorstep, with free customer parking.
Everyone keeps asking when it is to open , so we know it will be a highly prized local asset.
Sadly the correspondence doesn’t give an opening day…but it is nevertheless a great indicator that the plans are on the move…..If you want to ask Aldi more about their plans and proposals you can contact them direct on 0800 298 7040
