New Kingswinford Supermarket To Bring 40 Jobs To The Town

A new Aldi supermarket creating around 40 jobs could be making its way to Kingswinford, under new proposals.

It would be situated off Dudley Road in Kingswinford in the former Focus DIY store that has stood empty for three years. Bosses say that plans are still at an early stage and before submitting a planning application they would like to know what local residents think.

A public exhibition will be held next week. Councillor Dave Tyler, who represents the Kingswinford North and Wall Heath Ward, hailed the build as a ‘good news’. He said:

“All councillors and residents had notification of the meeting next week and I will be present. We are welcoming the jobs and anything that creates jobs in the borough is good for us."

The discount supermarket chain say that the proposal would deliver a ‘multi-million-pound investment in the area’ – creating around 40 jobs in the store, as well as additional employment through construction, and supply chain opportunities. A spokesman for Aldi added:

“We hope local residents share our excitement over bringing a new store to Kingswinford. We are planning to provide a much more attractive setting off Dudley Road by refurbishing the former Focus DIY unit.

“The site has been vacant for quite some time, and our plans would see it brought back to life and provide a convenient new Aldi store for the local community.

“We would like to encourage people to find out more about the proposal and discuss it with the project team at our public exhibition. If there are any questions in the meantime, residents can call our freephone information line number on 0800 298 7040.”

The public exhibition will take place at St Mary’s Church Centre, The Village, Kingswinford, at 3pm and 7pm on next Wednesday.
