The store at Laporte Retail Park on Dallow Road has been rebuilt with 1,315 sqm of retail space and provides 38 jobs to the community.

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the new store has a number of safety measures in place, including sanitisation stations on entry, perspex screens at its tills and social distancing reminders in store - as well as a traffic light system to control the number of people coming and going.

Store manager Balint Herr said: “It’s been a wonderful morning here at the opening of Aldi Luton. It was lovely to meet our new customers and welcome back familiar faces to the Laporte Retail Park store.

The new store will be open Monday to Saturday from 8am to 10pm, and on Sunday from 10am to 4pm.
