Aldi is giving away prize-winning tickets to its first 100 customers at the store’s opening next Thursday.

The tickets, sealed in golden envelopes, will include winnings for a 42-inch HD LED television, Classic Food Mixers and bundles of Aldi shopping.

Melanie Mansfield, Aldi Store Manager, said: “We are looking forward to the opening of our new store in Saffron Walden and we’re sure the local community will enjoy our grand opening celebrations with 100 golden tickets up for grabs.”

For those not lucky enough to nab a ticket, the supermarket will hold its first ‘Specialbuy’ day, where customers can save on electrical and household ranges; a deal which will run every Thursday and Sunday.

Next week’s ‘Specialbuys’ will include 24-inch LED television and DVD combinations for £89.99 and 10-inch Tablet PCs for £99.99.

Ms Mansfield added: “We expect to see plenty of shoppers on Thursday take advantage of our opening week offers, in addition to our range of products at everyday low prices.”

Due to launch on July 16 at 8 o’clock in the morning, the supermarket has already provided 28 new jobs for the town, as well as promising 11 more; nine Store Assistants are being recruited for along with two Stock Assistants.
