The new store, located on Purbeck, off Saxon Street, will be run by Store Manager Nick Taylor, along with a team of 33 colleagues from the local community.

He said: “It’s been a wonderful morning here at the opening of Aldi Milton Keynes. It was lovely to welcome our new customers into store and I look forward to meeting more of the community in the coming weeks.

“I’d also like to thank our customers for following the social distancing guidelines we have in place to ensure the health and safety of both our customers and colleagues.”

The store has a number of safety measures in place, including sanitisation stations on entry, Perspex screens at its tills and social distancing reminders in store, as well as a traffic light system to control the number of people going in and out of the store.
