Aldi Streatham Will Open In January 2018
12th August 2017 News 8 Comments
An Aldi employee has confirmed that Streatham’s new Aldi superstore will be opening in January 2018.
Apparently Aldi were originally planning to open around Christmas 2017. But the opening has been delayed. It’s not much of a surprise. They’ve not made much progress renovating the building since the new Aldi Store was announced in June.
The Aldi Store and a 24 hour gym will be in the building that used to be a Morrisons supermarket. The building has been empty since the supermarket closed in 2015.
The Gym group have also announced that their gym will open later than planned. They had originally said the Gym would open in September 2017. Now they have pushed back the opening date to October 2017!
I used to love going to Morrisons, and was sorry when it closed, but not surprised.
I always had a problem shopping there by car, as you were not allowed to turn right out of their car park onto Streatham High Road, and instead had to drive over half a mile all around the busy back streets in order to pass Morrisons on the other side of the road.
I do hope Aldi won’t have the same problem.
It would be simple enough to allow the cars to turn right out of their car park if the lights next to the station and those in the dip were phased right.
M&S – Monday, 23 October
Aldi – Thursday 23 November
Gym – ???
I’m with you Carol C. I shall be parking in the car park ‘next door’ if the traffic light issue remains and we have to turn left out of Aldi and trek round the streets to get back to where we started – which is quite a time-consuming and unnecessary journey – especially during ‘rush-hour’ times. I hope common sense will prevail, but I’m not holding my breath 🙁
Hi – thanks for your website and initiative. I’d like to add how excited I am about these developments: M&S, Aldi and the new Gym etc. I’ve been living in Streatham over 30 years and seen loads of changes. I’d like to concur with the previous writer, it would be great to see that these businesses have asked for in their development plans “a right turn” out of the Station Approach road because for more traffic to go left and upwards Streatham High Road and turn right into the side roads, which are generally a congestion nightmare, would make sense esp. with the lowering of traffic jams and pollution. Nevertheless I am pleased to see changes, onwards and upwards. I still have not been into M&S one of my favourite shops so I am so looking forward to shopping there 🙂 yay…
I totally agree. My family and I will not shop there unless cars will be allowed to turn right out of M& S and Alldi car park.
Not being able to do so is a nuisance and a waste of time. Looink forward to see if this will change.
Aldi Streatham will open on Thurs 18th Jan 2018!
Love the new m&s and now Aldi in a few weeks 🙂 apparently Aldi has lots of vegan options too
it wont change because that would mean they have common sense ,the mayor doesn’t want it to change proving the high emission problem in London .After all we all walk around with face masks on as in china , if you were able to turn right it would have a negative effect on his cravings
