Aldi is set to open a brand-new store at Alvis Retail Park on Thursday 30th November at 8am.


The new store will be run by Store Manager Freddie Wakelin, along with a team of 60 colleagues from the local community. Applications and more information on all of Aldi’s store positions can be found here.

As part of Aldi’s investment in local communities across the UK, the new store will offer more customers access to Aldi’s high quality, low-price products. In fact, consumer group Which? confirmed Aldi as the UK’s Cheapest Supermarket for 2022 - the second year in a row that it has been awarded this title.

The new store will offer fresh, British meat products with weekly offers, Aldi’s award-winning ‘Specially Selected’ range, exclusive Beers, Wines and Spirits, and a ‘Food to Go’ section at the front of the store. Aldi’s legendary Specialbuys will also be available in the middle aisle every Thursday and Sunday, offering extraordinary value on a wide range of products, from electrical items to garden tools.

To celebrate the official partnership between Aldi and ParalympicsGB, Freddie Wakelin and his team will be joined by ParalympicsGB bronze medallist Robert Oliver to celebrate the store opening by cutting the all-important ribbon on opening morning. Robert will also give away complimentary bags of fresh fruit and vegetables from Aldi’s famous Super 6 range to the first 30 customers in the queue.

Aldi Store Manager Freddie Wakelin said: “We can’t wait to open the doors to the new store in Coventry. It’s set to be a special day and having Paralympics hero Robert Oliver join us will make it a morning to remember.”

Paracanoe star Robert Oliver added: “I’m so excited to be opening Aldi’s new store; it will be great to chat to customers and a lovely way for me to thank Aldi for its support of ParalympicsGB.”

The new Aldi store is also calling on local charities and food banks in Coventry to register with Neighbourly, a community engagement platform that links businesses to charitable organisations in the local community. 

Local charities that register will be able to collect surplus food and perishable products, such as fruit, vegetables and baked goods, seven days a week. Any charities in the area that would like to partner up with the new Aldi store should email

The new store will be located on Alvis Retail Park, Holyhead Road, Coventry, CV5 8BX, and will be open:


Monday - Saturday: 08:00 - 22:00

Sunday: 10:00 - 16:00
