Andrew Barr has announced there will be two new supermarkets going into Dickson and one will be an Aldi:
I am pleased to announce today that the Government will be seeking expressions of interest for the construction of two new supermarkets at Dickson. One of these supermarkets will be Aldi. The other will be a full-line supermarket, with the operator of the supermarket to be determined during the EOI process.
The two new supermarkets will give consumers greater choice in Dickson. It will mean a wider selection of places to shop, a wider variety of goods, and more competition, which can only be a good thing for keeping prices down.
It will also contribute to the renewal of the Dickson group centre.
And there was much rejoicing throughout the Inner North.
