It would surprise me, they are rather comfy there location wise, lots of parking, right next to tram and the new ikea coming right next door.

Is this something general or does this belong in Sheffield news and discussions?

I'd imagine a lot of the discount stores struggling now - their low margins won't be able to absorb the soaring import costs due to the low pound.

Well, 48% voted to stay in EU but it is talked about now as if all of UK really wanted to leave. Such a tiny little 4% minority but media and politics behave as if it was the whole country who wants to leave now.
I welcome brexit, we will get £350 million for new hospitals every day, a wise decision.

I mentioned this Aldi closing topic to a friend. The response was that M. retail park must have increased in value significantly with its new neighbour on the way. Maybe someone is buying them out or the place is getting too expensive for them.

Still no acute confirmation if this topic is real.

Back on topic please. The thread is about Aldi, not Brexit.

Thank you

We shop Sainsbury Waitrose Tesco morrison Aldi and sometimes m&s. We use three different Aldi, meadow hall is one of them. If it shut we just go to another one but I do like the location as we pass by there on certain journeys.

A good thing about this Aldi is plenty of parking space which can't be said of the store on Handsworth Road

Maybe the new business rates are expected to be too exorbitant.

Well if they were a responsible retailer / employer they would redeploy the team to near by stores. As everyonr says they have and are opening loads

I mainly use this Aldi when coming back off the motorway or a stint at Meadowhall.

Most probably will, they​ pay staff the proper living wage... Not Gideon's.
