European supermarket giant Aldi is continuing to upgrade its presence in Canberra with its store at Cooleman Court in Weston closing for a refresh next week.

The popular store will close at 8:00 pm on Monday, 21 June, and reopen on Saturday, 26 June, as it undergoes a makeover, including a minor store extension and a refreshed store layout.

An Aldi spokesperson said the supermarket’s range of products, fresh food, discounts and distinctive weekly specials will not change.

“We’re excited to be undertaking these upgrades and welcome the community to visit our updated store from Saturday, 26 June, and share their feedback about the store experience,” said the spokesperson.

The store will continue to be staffed by its team of 20 to 30 permanent full-time and part-time employees, and opening hours will remain the same.

It is one of two supermarkets at Cooleman Court, with Woolworths being a longstanding tenant.

Another Aldi store may also be on the cards in nearby Wright, as part of the Koko Molonglo mixed-use development, which already has a Woolworths Metro store slotted for the retail component.

Aldi is eyeing a presence near Fyshwick Markets, teaming up with the owners of 11 Nyrang Street to develop a proposal for a 1750-square-metre supermarket being established on the site in 2024. The site currently hosts a freighting and transport company.

The site’s zoning will need to change, and some Fyshwick Markets businesses are upset at the proposal and do not see Aldi as the right fit for the area.

In 2020, Aldi opened a new store in Amaroo, in Canberra’s north.

Is this more spin from the lessee? ALDI at Fyshwick did not proceed because there are very stringent rules in the ACT regarding where supermarkets are to be located. The opening of a Supabarn at Kingston has impacted the suburban smaller markets. It’s not an issue of whether you prefer ALDI to other supermarkets. It’s about good planning policy.
