Aldi looks to expand its store at Inshes Retail Park, Inverness
SUPERMARKET chain Aldi has submitted plans to extend its store at Inshes.
The shop opened in 2014, accompanying the firm’s other Inverness outlet at Friar’s Bridge.
If approved by council planners the extension would get underway next year a spokesman for Aldi has said.
The company hopes to increase the floor space by a further 397 square metres, to be split between sales, warehousing, staff accommodation and customer toilets.
Alterations to the car parking area also form part of the proposals.
The development is at the north east corner of the store and documents lodged with Highland Council include assurances that a row of 15 beech and two hawthorn trees at the site will not be affected by the plans, with provision being made to protect them during construction.
An Aldi spokesman said: “We have recently applied for planning permission to extend our Inverness Inshes store.
“If our application is successful we plan to extend the store next year.
“This will include brighter and wider aisles and more space for our fresh, chilled and food-to-go ranges. We will keep the community updated on developments.”
