Gladstone ALDI reveals 86 cheap, exclusive items for opening today

IN A LAST-DITCH move to lure shoppers to its grand opening, ALDI has wheeled out a long list of products on special exclusively sold at its Gladstone store.

ALDI, which has recently announced its plans to build two new centres in Rockhampton, will open its doors to Gladstone at 8am today (Wednesday).

Work continues on the new Aldi store, at the corner of Boles and Breslin Sts.

But on the eve of the opening, the German discount grocery king has revealed a list of 86 products you can't buy anywhere in Australia but Gladstone.

Most of the items will go on the shelves tomorrow morning, but ALDI intends to keep shoppers coming back by releasing a second set of special products on Saturday.

The supermarket giant is reserving the right to limit the number of purchases in case some shoppers go crazy cleaning up all the stock.

ALDI also stressed that to avoid disappointment, shoppers need to be quick, as there is only a limited amount of stock.
