A busy supermarket in Renfrew is to reopen with "a fresh new look".

The Aldi store, in the town's High Street, has been shut since Saturday as it undergoes a major refurbishment.

The supermarket is set to reopen to customers at 8am on Thursday, May 25.

Standing at 1,305sqm of retail space, a more customer-focused layout with more space will allow for products to be found more easily whilst browsing new ranges.

The transformation is part of Aldi's £600m investment into further improving its stores and services across the UK and is based on feedback from more than 50,000 customers. The Project Fresh renovations have been ongoing since 2018.

The new-look store will offer increased space, dedicated to fresh Scottish meat and fish, as well as popular Lacura health and beauty products, award-winning Scottish craft beers, wines and spirits, famous Mamia babycare products, and a new and improved Food to Go section, offering a choice of fresh salads, sandwiches and sushi for busy customers.

The format has been created to make shopping easier for Renfrew customers and the new-look store will now have more space and clearer signs to make shopping "effortless". 

Fresh bread and cakes are being moved to the last aisle to prevent them from getting squashed under customers' shopping and the store will now offer new, easy-to-browse freezers.

The store employs 24 members of the local community and the refurbishment will create additional jobs.

Customers visiting the store can take advantage of Aldi's famous Specialbuys, which are available every Thursday and Sunday. 

During re-opening week, the store will be offering a range of outdoor essentials, including a portable BBQ for £29.99, a foldable cooler bag for £9.99 and a single air bed with a foot pump for £11.99.

David Finch, manager of Aldi's Renfrew store, said: "The store is looking fantastic, and we can't wait to welcome our loyal customers back so they can see it for themselves. 

"We're committed to making sure that the shopping experience each customer enjoys in our stores is on a par with the products and services they're used to."
