|Aldi opens its doors at Bieshof in Dordrecht
Real estate investor Altera Vastgoed (hereinafter: Altera) is joining with its partners to celebrate the opening of the ALDI supermarket in the Bieshof community shopping centre. After Albert Heijn and Plus, ALDI is the third supermarket in the shopping centre, which also has a strong fresh food section with Zuivelhoeve, Keurslager and a local fish shop and vegetable shop.
The past year has seen store expansions in cooperation with the tenants Verhage and Plus and a number of tenants have relocated within the centre to facilitate the arrival of ALDI.
The expansion of Verhage and Plus and the arrival of ALDI have further increased the food & convenience offering in the shopping centre and all available premises have been let.
Erwin Wessels, CIO of Altera, said: “The opening of the ALDI store marks the completion of an intensive asset management process. Over the recent period we have further strengthened the centre’s daily groceries offering and there are no longer any vacant premises. That makes Bieshof a prime example of a future-proof community shopping centre, which fits in perfectly with our strategy. We remain committed to the further growth of the supermarket share of our convenience portfolio.”

It is a solid community shopping centre of approximately 9,420 m² gross floor area / 33 shops, covering a complete daily range of food & convenience and a good ratio of local entrepreneurs and chain stores, such as Albert Heijn, Plus and Kruidvat.
