THE doors of Aldi in Dalgety Bay will open to customers for the first time tomorrow morning (Thursday).

To celebrate the opening, the ribbon on the new store will be cut by Olympic silver medallist and judo star Gemma Gibbons-Burton.

The supermarket is part of the £4 million Dalgety Bay Gateway and will be open from 8am to 10pm from Monday to Saturday, and 9am to 8pm on a Sunday.

The first 30 eager customers through the doors tomorrow morning at 8am will be rewarded with a complimentary bag of fresh fruit and veg.

The store includes large chillers and freezers, a ‘food to go’ section at the front of the shop, a new fixture along the back wall showcasing Aldi’s award winning beers, wines and spirits and an exclusive section full of award-winning health and beauty products.

Gemma Gibbons-Burton, said: "I’m so excited to be opening Aldi’s new store not far from where I live in Edinburgh. It's a great way for me to give back to the local community who have supported me throughout my sporting career and a lovely way for me to thank Aldi for its endless support of Team GB."

Aldi Dalgety Bay is the third in the West Fife area, adding to the chain's other two supermarkets at Halbeath Road and Duloch Park in Dunfermline.

Joining Aldi at the Gateway development will be a Greggs bakers, Specsavers, Domino's restaurant, Screwfix Direct and a Vets4Pets business.

The Scarborough Muir Group, a major landowner at Rosyth Waterfront, outlined their vision for the £4m site in May 2013. A planning application was submitted later that year and approved in 2015.
