Aldi are set to create up to 40 jobs with the opening of its new superstore in Guisborough, North Yorkshire. The 16,900 sq ft derelict site used to belong to a branch of Focus DIY, and has remained empty since 2011.
An Aldi spokesperson has stated:
‘The store will span over 16,900 sq ft and bring an additional 30-40 new jobs to the area. We look forward to bringing much-needed retail choice to the area.’ (GazetteLive, 29th April 2014)
Work is expected to begin ahead of a proposed opening in October.
