    Hopefully it's nothing , and they're just doing a stock take or moving stuff about , but seemed a bit off, especially as everything short dated seemed to be on offer.

    The word on the tills is that it is a 'deep clean'.


    They are definitely suffering from the car park destruction, though, and may be taking advantage of the quiet time to do this..?

    Did it flood? Happened just before the building was finished. Or maybe the pile driving upset the in-store bakery?

    They could revitalise the Aldi plan for the back of Lloyd's/Bristol Street, abandoning the current store with its destroyed car-park and likely future traffic issues?

    One out on Weston Road?

    And Acton Gate?

    I was thinking top of weston Road, and the aldi plan had crossed my mind. There's nothing else really north though unless on the industrial estate next to the a34?

    Despite that being a very ambiguous description I know exactly who you mean

    A Lidl that close to home and work would be a very dangerous prospect for me...

    Popped in at lunch and they're unexpectedly having a refurb, so for the next few days will be closing at 6. Seems much better, although I'll miss the jumble sale look of the old store, it's so bright too.

    Looking more like a generic supermarket now.

    Think it'll be finished in about a week.

    There's loads more new product lines in store now too.

    Mmm, looking rather like the style of their stores in Ireland.
