BARGARA'S Aldi store is getting close to opening as the internal fit-out gets underway.

According to developer Stockwell, the building has been handed over to Aldi.

The store will be the fourth in the region, following on from the Kepnock, Avoca and central Bundaberg stores.

In a boost for the region, when the Maryborough St Aldi opened in the city, Aldi said 15-20 permanent full and part time jobs had been created.

In May, Aldi told the NewsMail that it had been strong support from the Bundaberg community which encouraged them to open several stores in our region.

However, the Bargara store will be the last for a while.

"Aldi Australia is eager to bring the Aldi difference to more Australians, offering high-quality products at permanently low prices,” said a spokesperson for the company.

"At this stage, we don't have any plans for further stores in the area.”

Woolworths will also be fitting out the interiors of its expanded space now handed over from developer Stockwell.

Development and expansion works are still tracking towards opening prior to Christmas.

Bargara Bakery has started its internal fit-out.
