Our view on how the opening of Aldi could impact the High Street in Stroud
We were asked by Stroud News and Journal to comment on the opening of Aldi outside Stroud and regarding the concerns, raised at planning stage, that it might have an unfavourable impact on Stroud's High Street. We responded: "Bringing employment to the area and additional choice is welcome. It's unfortunate that the site is so far away from town centres and Stroud is in need of a supermarket offering in the town for those who live and work there. It would be great to see such a retailer open a town-sized supermarket to bring more diversity into our town centre, which in turn is likely to bring more trade to the other great retailers who are in town."
