THE new Aldi store in Windsor is ‘progressing well’ and is expected to open near the end of summer.

A spokesperson has given a small update on how the development of the new discount supermarket in Dedworth Road is going since its approval last year.

Despite concerns from locals, a majority of councillors on the Royal Borough Development Management Panel approved for the old Windsor Garden Centre to be demolished for an Aldi store.

Earlier this year, demolition of the garden centre began which caused quite a stir for nearby residents, describing the noise, vibrations, and dust as a ‘war zone’.

The Royal Borough said the level of noise was deemed what you would expect from a demolition site and that week was particularly noisy due to a concrete slab being removed.

Since then, an Aldi spokesperson gave the Observer a small update on the project, saying: “Construction for our new Dedworth Road store is progressing well as we move towards opening near the end of summer this year. This will create up to 40 jobs for the community.”

Jobs have already started circulating online for locals to apply for such as store assistant and retail deputy manager.

Salaries for store assistant roles are advertised at £9.55 to £10.57 per hour and are expected to provide ‘excellent’ customer service and ensuring the shelves are fully stocked.

The retail deputy manager will be paid slightly more at £10.55 to £11.57 per hour and the role involves running the store in the absence of the manager and assistant manager.

This role could be well suited for those wanting to gain experience and are pursuing a career in management.
