WORK on High Wycombe’s second Aldi store ‘is progressing well’ - and the supermarket says it’s on course to open this year.

The new store is being built next to B&Q and Halfords off Gomm Road and will become the town’s second Aldi after the opening of the Baker Street branch in September.

And a third Aldi could be on the cards after Wycombe District Council discussed plans for project similar to Baker Street on derelict land next to Next and Empire cinema in Cressex.

The doors, windows and roof is all in place and some landscaping work around what will eventually be the new car park has been completed.

Bosses have revealed they are planning to open ‘in the autumn’ – but would not be tied down to a more specific date.

An Aldi spokesperson said: “Work on our new High Wycombe store is progressing well and we look forward to opening this autumn, helping local residents shop and save closer to home and creating around 30 new jobs.”

This project could also feature a McDonald’s drive thru.

Meanwhile, Lidl is still trying to get planning permission to open a new store in the former Homebase on London Road to the east of High Wycombe.

The plan, which also includes separate ‘pod units’ that could contain a coffee shop, has been dogged with problems after objections from the Environment Agency about possible pollution to the River Wye that runs alongside.
