A new mega discount store - Winners - is to open in Lowestoft


WOULD-BE workers for a new store opening in Lowestoft town centre in March were being interviewed this week.

The Winners Discount Megastore will open on the site of the former Aldi branch in Commercial Road.

The company says its aim is to offer local customers “some of the lowest prices in the UK” on goods ranging from food and clothing to toys.

After opening its first store and head office in Rawtenstall, in Lancashire, last year, Winners’ second UK store will open in Lowestoft on March 1.

Since Aldi closed its store 
in January 2009, the building has been vacant. So, the arrival of Winners should widen the choice for shoppers as well as providing new jobs.

Applicants for these were being interviewed during the week. The exact number of full-time and part-time posts on offer is not clear as The Journal went to press.

The Winners Discount Megastore website says that its stores stock health and 
beauty products, toys, household textiles, electrical and seasonal goods, housewares, home decor items, drinks and confectionery, clothing, DIY products and 
car-care goods.
