Aldi has responded to rumours about the future of its store in Waterloo Road, South Shore, with some shoppers under the impression that it plans to close the supermarket.
Shoppers have been speculating about the future of the store since Aldi opened a new branch in Oxford Square, just a mile up the road.
In response to these reports, the Gazette has sought clarification from Aldi about the future of the supermarket.

We also asked for clarification on the future of the St Annes store after similar concerns were raised about plans to close the branch in Clifton Drive North and replace it with a new branch in Lytham.
Aldi has dismissed the reports, with a spokesman saying, “We currently don’t have any plans to close either store”.
The supermarket has been busy expanding its footprint across the Fylde coast, with its refurbished store in Fleetwood reopening earlier this month.
Work is also under way on a new Aldi at the former Poundstretcher unit in Holyoake Avenue, Bispham which is expected to open in Autumn.
