SHOPPERS are being encouraged to get their skates on as a Johnstone store gives them the chance to take part in their very own Supermarket Sweep.

The fun contest is being organised by the town's ALDI outlet as part of the company's celebrations to mark its 25th anniversary in Scotland.

Application forms can be filled in at the High Street store between Sunday, April 14, and Saturday, April 20.

One lucky shopper will then be chosen to do a five-minute trolley dash in store and take home all the ALDI favourites they can grab in that time.

As an added bonus, ALDI will also donate the cash value of the trolley to a local foodbank.

Richard Holloway, ALDI's regional managing director for Scotland, said: “The famous ALDI supermarket sweep is now coming to Johnstone, giving one lucky shopper the chance to stock up on their favourite ALDI products while also raising money for a worthy cause.”

Shoppers will be asked to nominate their chosen foodbank when applying to take part. Entrants must be aged 18 or over and alcohol products are not included in the sweep.

Entry is free and the winner will be invited to take part in the event at the High Street store before Sunday, May 5. He or she must be available to take part in the sweep after 10pm on their chosen date.
