Community leaders are eager to open their city’s new supermarket, and say it will make the area more ‘attractive’.
Aldi is set to open a new branch in Pittsburgh, which will create 40 new jobs.
Jobs on offer include career starter training, manager training and shop assistants.
The city already has a Sainsbury’s branch, as well as a small P&M and home bargain.
Councilor John Jones thinks the new Aldi branch, located a short distance from Dunstall Road, will ‘complete the jigsaw’ for shopping.
He said: “This is very good news for Pitul. This is going to provide employment. This is going to give people extra choice.
“Aldi will complete the jigsaw for people shopping, which means they don’t have to go out to shop, and it keeps people in the pit, which is good for the high street.
“As a city council, we have been working hard with Aldi to get bus access to this site, which is coming to a positive conclusion. . ”
Mr Jones added: “We hope that jobs will be offered to local people. Any job opportunities will be very welcome.
“It enhances the ambition to make the city more attractive.”
Independent Councilor Jim Davis said: “This is very welcome. It would be nice to have two supermarkets. Of course, unemployment in the city is not an issue, but extra jobs are always useful. We look forward to it.
“It would be nice to have a competitor, which is good for the city and shoppers.”
Conor Brady, a 21-year-old labor councilor, hopes the new store will benefit the city’s youth.
He said: “It’s a nice addition, and you can see how successful it is to get to the fiddle and other things like opening fast food stores here.
“It gives residents another place to get products. It brings in a few new jobs, which is great, and it usually brings more people to the city and gets more than 93 people on the bus.
“Having a new football pitch next door will benefit the youth in the city.
“Especially those kinds of jobs often go to young people who have just finished school and are in need of part-time jobs, which helps the poor, and that means some young people don’t need to leave the area.
“This is not a large-scale job, and it is important that there are other strategies of the local government and the federal government to help us rebuild our high street in the city as the speed of the cove high street increases.”
