MP briefed on Aldi's £5million transformation plans for Pershore indoor market

Evesham Editorial 24th Oct, 2023   0

PERSHORE’s MP Harriett Baldwin has been briefed on plans which will see a brand-new Aldi built in the heart of the town centre.

The superstore is planned for the site of the town’s indoor market and Mrs Baldwin walked around the site with representatives from the company to hear plans for the relocation of the popular businesses based there.

Aldi has put a planning application in to build the £5million store and district councillors will have their say on the plans early next year.

Many of the current stall holders already have plans for a new location and Mrs Baldwin was briefed on plans to work with the district and town councils to encourage more people to visit both the store and the high street.

The West Worcestershire MP said: “Pershore is already a wonderful place to shop with lots of independent retailers.

“Bearing in mind the proposed new location and the impact this may have on tenants at the indoor market, I took the time to walk around with representatives from Aldi and talk to them about their plans if the store is approved.




“The final decision on the store will be made by Wychavon District Councillors but if it goes ahead, I am confident that Aldi and the local economic development team will make sure that stall-holders are well supported to find new locations if needed.

“The new Aldi should be a boost for local people and the local economy.”
