Aldi to join line-up at Mill Farm Sports Village

Aldi has become latest business to sign up to the new £18 million Mill Farm Sports Village currently taking shape in Wesham.

The retailer will be launching at the site in June as part of its Lancashire expansion programme.

Aldi operations director James Knott said the Mill Farm site was an "exciting" opportunity for the international retailer.

He added: “The Mill Farm development will bring an unrivalled experience to the North West and we are excited to be a part of such an ambitious leisure village, which we feel will become a real hub for the local community.

“It also means our customers in Kirkham and Wesham won’t have to travel so far to benefit from our everyday low prices.”

The 1,140 square metre store will be one of Aldi’s larger format stores and will feature around 1,500 product lines. Recruitment for the Kirkham store is already underway.

At the heart of the Mill Farm Sports Village will be a new 6,000 capacity stadium for AFC Fylde alongside state-of-the-art 5 and 7-a-side pitches, a full size hockey pitch, a 3G football pitch, a petrol station and various restaurants and bars.

Mill Farm owner David Haythornthwaite said: “We’re committed to the local area and are delighted to be welcoming Aldi to the development. We’ll be working closely together to ensure we provide an excellent facility for the local community and play an important role in the rejuvenation of the Fylde Coast for generations to come.”
