Does anyone know if planning permission has been granted for Lidl or Aldi to build a supermarket at Cannon Park? Does anyone here shop with the existing shops Aldi/Lidl and if so what are they like? Remember Quick Save? Stack it high and sell it cheap. We often used the one that was in the Westmede shopping centre and that was OK. For a number of years we have shopped at Cannon Park and was wondering what impact a new supermarket would have on existing businesses. It's a good place to shop with anything you could want all under the same roof.

Norman Conquest, Aldi has applied to build a new store at Shultern Lane area where the Renault dealership is. According to the press the application goes before the planning committee on Thursday. The press speculate they will be given the green light.

Aldi and Lidl have good quality products - but not brands you may be familiar with. Many are leading brands in other European countries. It will certainly give Tesco a problem to digest.

We shop at both Lidl and Aldi in Tamworth. They both sell most products you could want but not usually in brands you would recognise. Lidl do sell a few more branded products. We have been satisfied with most things we buy at both stores. It is usually a quick and easy shop as there are no choices to be made, you either buy it or you don't. We still go to another supermarket every few weeks to get the stuff I am fussy about like soap powder and the odd things they don't sell. Lidl do a good selection of fresh meat and fish. I think men like Aldi as well because they usually sell a lot of man things. Both stores have a different selection of non-food items in as well and often have good prices on things like microwaves all of which are good quality. Now both stores have started taking credit cards.

Ghastly places, they remind me of those dreadful 'Kwik Save' stores.

Oh dear! I quite liked Quick Save, cheap and cheerful. I hear what you say Flapdoodle but think I will pop in to have a look see when the new one opens.

Norman Conquest You should try Aldi and save yourself some money, a lot of low income people must be better off due to Aldi. Retail prices are determined by overheads, Aldi's are lower than the big supermarkets, hence their prices are lower. Much quicker to do your shopping compared to somewhere like the Tesco at the Ricoh which is to big, you also get through the checkouts twice as quick as most supermarkets, this because you put the goods back into the trolley and then pack them on a worktop a few yards from the checkout. Tesco will certainly notice it when they open if they are as busy as their Radford Store. Been to Aldi today and then to M&S Simply Food next door (20mile round trip) Alan H

Totally agree about Tesco at Ricoh. Only been there once, it's far too big and takes an eternity to get through the checkout. There is an Aldi on the Radford Rd, been past it a thousand times but never gone in. I am looking forward to the new build at Cannon Park and will certainly give it a try. Sorry Flapdoodle Blush

Not the ones we use - they're fine - clean, tidy, good on price, quality and stock I remember the first Asda we used - that was fairly dreadful, with stock still in cardboard outers

Aldi also sell Medion electronic products. We have had a couple of Medion Computers in the past, they are a good price and good products.

This is the state of progress on the new Aldi store at Cannon Park. Picture taken a couple of hours ago.
