Stables Business Park welcomes new supermarket

The Aldi supermarket is in the Isleport Business Park in Highbridge 

Workers at the Stables Business Park at Rooksbridge have a new supermarket to visit in their lunchbreak or on their way home to bag a few bargains.

A spokesperson for the business park in Somerset near J22 of the M5 said: “We welcome this extra retail facility as it means those working at the business park have variety of options for shopping on or too their way to work. Apart from the village shop a short walk from the park there is a Tesco, an Asda and now an Aldi supermarket within a few minutes’ drive of the Stables Business Park.”

The supermarket is on the Isleport Business Park on the edge of the town and lies less than a 10 minute drive from Rooksbridge. It was opened on August 23rd, by the Olympic pentathlete Samantha Murray with a queue of shoppers lining up for the cutting of the ribbon to throw open the store doors. It has taken a year for the German owned discount grocery store to open following planning permission and construction work.

The attraction for locals are the low prices although Asda nearby gives the new business a run for its money when it comes to savings. Asda is currently being investigated by the Government’s competition watchdog over a proposed merger with Sainsbury’s which could lead to hundreds of store closures. However there is no news yet of that outcome and whether it would affect the store in Highbridge.

Residents with longer memories will recall the days of Normans Cash and carry in the town – now long since gone. Of course for those at the Stables Business Park there is a nearer option in the filling station at Brent Knoll which has a convenience store, and going back up the A38 there is a store at Lower Weare’s filling station – both a short drive away.
