New store 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.
