A budget supermarket chain with plans for a new store in Rhuddlan has brought the town’s retail park.
Castle View, which includes a Premier Inn hotel, a Whitbread pub and restuarant and a KFC branch, has been brought by Aldi for an undisclosed sum from the Property Alliance Group.
Aldi has already started building work on its new store at the site, set to create around 50 jobs when it opens later this year. They are also planning a new Denbigh store at the site of the former Kwik Save at Station Yard.
Alliance development director Jonathan Mather said: ”Aldi’s acquisition of the entire retail park represents a significant investment in Rhuddlan and demonstrates its commitment to the town. The site adds to the retailer’s growing property portfolio as part of its ambitious development plans across North Wales.”
Denbighshire County Council gave planning permission for the new supermarket last summer despite concerns from Rhuddlan Town Council about the impact it may have on traffic moving through the area.
