A new Aldi supermarket has come a step closer to opening in Brough as the retailer starts construction work in the town.
Ground improvement works on the site of the new store on Brough South have now been completed by the Horncastle Group PLC, enabling Aldi to start building work.
The supermarket is the first in a host of exciting retail and leisure amenities planned for the £200m Brough South development, further enhancing this already popular East Yorkshire town.
Other food retailers, a family-friendly pub and restaurant, and non-food shops, will all form part of the retail and leisure offer as Brough South continues to be developed.
The development is being brought forward by leading East Yorkshire property developer, the Horncastle Group PLC, on behalf of the Brough South Consortium. The consortium is made up of the developers, local landowners and developers Alma Jordan (Builders) Ltd, Riplingham Estates and BAE Systems.
Ian Hodges, Managing Director of the Horncastle Group PLC, said it was fantastic to see the start of Brough South’s retail offering get underway.
He said: “Brough South has always been a mixed development in the truest sense of the word, bringing new homes to the town, but also more choice and amenities to existing residents.
“Aldi will significantly enhance Brough’s food retail offering when the store opens its doors and pave the way for further food and non-food shops and other first-class amenities going forward.”
Construction work on site is expected to take the rest of the year, with Aldi planning to open its doors on Brough South in early 2022.
