The next phase of the “best loved UK supermarket” setting up shop at the Marina Quay is underway.

Scarborough International Properties (SIP), has submitted an application for detailed planning consent for an Aldi to relocate from its current store on Wellington Road store to the £25 million development on Rhyl’s seafront.

In national media, it was reported this week that the supermarket giant unseated Waitrose from the top spot in a Which? consumer survey for customer satisfaction.

Jack Abou-Jaoude, development manager of SIP, said: “We are extremely excited about the prospect of opening a new Aldi store at Marina Quay. We have worked hard to deliver an accessible and larger store for Rhyl residents.

The Journal reported in November supermarket giant had plans to open a store at Marina Quay, with the plans for the relocation to a larger 18,567 sq ft store.

The planning application is being submitted after a successful public consultation in December, and plans being on display at at Rhyl library for a month from January 8.

Pending planning consent from Denbighshire County Council, construction will commence later on this year, and if approved, the development would see Aldi move from within the town centre with plans to add more jobs to existing Aldi staff.

Mr Abou-Jaoude added:“The planning consent will enable us to create employment opportunities in the area and provide consumers with even more choice. We look forward to progressing the scheme."

The deal will see the supermarket join Poundworld, Farmfoods and Greggs and the soon The Range, which is due to open on Good Friday, March 30.
