Discount supermarket chain Aldi has revealed when it plans to open its next store in Derby – a move that will create around 40 jobs.
The firm has said that its next outlet will open at the College Retail Park “early next year” – and according to its website, it is targeting February.
College Retail Park is a brand new development currently under construction on the former Mackworth College site between Normanton Road and Burton Road.
And it is calling on anyone who is interested in jobs at the store to visit its recruitment website.
Aldi has signed up to take over a 15,000 sq ft store at the development. Other retailers that are taking space are greetings card retailer The Card Factory, tanning business Indigo Sun and bakery chain Greggs.
How College Retail Park is expected to look
Work to clear the site, which has been derelict for almost 17 years, began earlier this year – and now construction work is underway.
An Aldi spokeswoman said: “Work is progressing well and we hope to open our store at College Retail Park, in Burton Road, early next year.
“This will create around 40 jobs, and anyone who is interested in applying should visit our website at www.aldirecruitment.co.uk.”
Earlier this month, Aldi received planning permission for another Derby store when South Derbyshire District Council gave the go-ahead for a new outlet off Swarkestone Road, Chellaston.

Like the store at the College Retail Park, it will create up to 40 jobs.
In recent years, Aldi has opened a number of new stores across Derby and Derbyshire. It has also been busy revamping existing outlets.

In Derby, Aldi now has stores in Uttoxeter New Road, the Meteor Retail Park, Nottingham Road, Chaddesden and Coleman Street, Alvaston.
Outside of Derby, Aldi has opened stores at Hilton, Belper, Heanor, Ilkeston, Alfreton and Swadlincote.
Locally, it is also building a massive distribution centre at Sawley Crossroads, near Sawley, that could create up to 1,000 jobs. The 600,000 sq ft centre will serve existing and planned new stores throughout the Midlands.
