Standing at 1,315 sqm of retail space, the store situated on Swallowtail Way is the first Aldi to open in the town.

It will be run by Store Manager Matthew Washbrook, along with a team of 38 colleagues from the local community.

The new Aldi store in Knaresborough has opened its doors.

The new store will offer large chillers and freezers dedicated to fresh, British meat products, a ‘Food to Go’ section at the front of the store, a fixture along the back wall showcasing Aldi’s award-winning beers, wines and spirits, and an exclusive section full of health and beauty products.

Aldi says it also 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 in place to control the number of people going in and out of the store.

Knaresborough customers can also take a walk down the ‘Aisle of Aldi’, where they will find Specialbuys which are available every Thursday and Sunday.

During opening week, the store will be offering a wide range of home essentials and accessories, including Addis laundry baskets for £3.49, Hotel Collection Matte Candles for £3.99 and potted indoor plants for £5.99.
