An Olympic gold medalist will open Norwich's newest Aldi store.

Scottish slalom canoeist Tim Baillie, who won gold in the London 2012 Olympics, will be the special guest at the launch of the store at Hall Road retail park on Thursday, May 11, at 8am.

Children from the Edith Cavell Academy school choir will provide entertainment for the supermarket customers.

The new 1,254sqm store is the fourth Aldi in Norwich and was given planning permission by Norwich City Council on December 2015, to the annoyance of its rivals.

It will create 40 new jobs and have 574 free car parking spaces.
