Good news for the bargain hunters with His Chiefliness (and lord high commander of retail), Jon Stanhope, decreeing three new ALDI stores for the Canberra periphery:
Supermarket retailer ALDI is set to increase its presence in Canberra after the ACT Government gave in-principle support to the direct sale of three sites to the discount chain.
Chief Minister Jon Stanhope said the entry of ALDI into group centres in Kaleen, Wanniassa and Chisholm would lead to more choice, convenience and value for money for Canberrans.
While the sale and details of the sites were subject to community consultation, Mr Stanhope said he expected the response from Canberrans to be positive.
The more big cheap cans of belgian beer the merrier!
