The supermarket chain Aldi will open a convenience store in Merksemsesteenweg in Deurne on Saturday 2 July, next to the bridge den Azijn. In this way, Aldi wants to reduce its stock of non-food products by offering them at a huge discount.
An empty warehouse on the Den Asegen bridge being converted into a makeshift Aldi outlet. For sale: lighting, barbecue equipment, cooling bars, … excess stock of non-food items left over during the last Corona years. During the pandemic, for example, there was a temporary ban on the sale of non-food products in supermarkets, but there were also logistical difficulties throughout the chain.
“We were able to run our weekly shows on Wednesdays and Saturdays when weather was possible, but we have a lot of unsold,” said spokesperson Jason Seifester. “These are now being offered at the outlet. Every day this store will offer a new collection at a huge discount. This period of high inflation is the perfect time for Aldi to do this and thus support the purchasing power of Belgian consumers.”
The Deurne outlet store will be open Monday through Saturday between 8.30 a.m. and 7 p.m. and will close as soon as Saturday, July 30 or until supplies run out. (Jacket)
