The store has been created as part of a joint development with supermarket giant Aldi. The new Aldi store is due to open in May.

Shoppers going along to the store on Saturday may well have also bumped into Debbie Catling (pictured above), a member of the North Somerset Times team, who was handing out copies of our newspaper to shoppers.
