Mackay and Whitsunday Life
After years of planning and proposing, construction for an Aldi supermarket has started in Mackay.
The 1900 square metre store is being constructed on the corner of Beaconsfield Road East and Superior Boulevard in Andergrove and boasts the best of discount foods and quality products.
“We are excited to bring our unique shopping experience to the Andergrove community in 2024,” said an ALDI Spokesperson.
“The new store will offer North Queenslanders a supermarket experience like no other, providing shoppers with award-winning grocery products at unbeatable prices and iconic Special Buys together with fresh fruit, vegetables and bread delivered daily.
“We will update the community as plans progress.”
The proposal for the store was fast tracked by council in late 2021, and the store was set to open by December 2022, halted by building constraints and lack of materials.
“We welcome Aldi and the construction of the North Mackay store,” said Mayor Greg Williamson.
“Aldi’s confidence and enthusiasm with our region is fantastic so congratulations to them.
“A lot of people are looking forward to this Aldi development.”
Construction is expected to be completed by February 2024.
