  1. This morning Asda revealed that it is to being consultation with its employees as it plans a massive restructuring of its business which could put 5,000 jobs at risk, including 3,000 support jobs. The proposed cuts would include in areas such as cash management, where there is less work as more people have been increasingly shopping online for groceries. The company aims to focus more on its online retail and delivery services which have become heavily used during the pandemic. Asda has increasingly come under pressure from smaller lo-cost supermarkets such as Aldi and Lidl, both of whom are fast becoming a major source of competition. The companies more traditional rivals like Tesco and Sainsburys are having similar problems as more and more people look to cut the cost of their weekly shop. Lidl is opening two new stores in Salford soon, one on the site of the old Mocha Parade in Lower Broughton and the second at Castle Irwell. The company opened a new store in Winton not too long ago. The smaller supermarkets were never really considered a threat but with the nations finances under pressure, so are they. Overall there has been a huge shift to online shopping as people have been forced to social distance but some have cited the current plans by Asda to be a step in the wrong direction as when the country reopens and the pandemic is a footnote in history, they predict people will return to the shops and traditional ways to shop. If the shops and services are not there then they will simply go to the ones which are. Both Lidl and Aldi have seen a boom in shopping in recent months and have even gone so far as to give staff wage increases and bonuses to reflect their increased profits. Asda chief executive Roger Burnley said:
  2. The development would create up to 50 new jobs if given the go ahead and bring almost two acres of derelict land back into use. It could also boost the city’s economy as Aldi seeks to work with local suppliers for products such as bread and dairy, and sources as many other products from British producers as possible. City Mayor Paul Dennett welcomed the application and said it could bring significant investment to the area, now known as Salford Gateway. Plans for the 1.79 acre site show a 1,786 square metre building, fronting onto Stadium Way and new access road from Stadium Way. It will have 115 car parking spaces, parking for bikes and motorbikes and will be easy to reach via public transport, pedestrian and cycle routes. The site will be landscaped with shrubs and trees and deliveries will be timed to avoid both the morning and afternoon rush hour. Stuart Parks, Regional Property Director from Aldi said:
  3. A huge well done to Aldi after stepping in to replace all of the items stolen from a local foodbank in Broughton. Truly showing the real spirit of Salford. Regional managing director Ruth Doyle at Aldi said she was appalled to hear that their donation to tackle period poverty had been taken from a storage unit at Mocha parade, Broughton. In a press release she said: The final distribution of the £2,500 donation to help women in period poverty and local families had been due to take place this week – but staff and volunteers were left in tears when they discovered thieves had broken in and cleaned out the entire unit. Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said he was delighted with the news and that he couldn’t thank Aldi enough for their kindness. Tom Togher, Chief Officer of Salford Citizen’s Advice and Salford Foodshare added: Salford City Council has identified new, secure storage for the donation. Meanwhile as we reported earlier today, police are determined to bring those who carried out this appalling act to justice.
  4. The discount supermarket chain has recently joined the council’s Salford Assist scheme, where residents in need of emergency food are given vouchers to spend in certain local stores. The move takes pressure off city food banks, freeing up their stock for other families in need. Now Aldi has donated a lorry full of sanitary pads, tampons and nappies worth around £2,500 to help women on low incomes struggling to cope with the cost of periods and caring for children. National research shows women spend an average of £500 per year on menstrual hygiene products while researchers estimate it costs around £800 to keep a child in nappies for the first two years of their life. A survey of local women using food banks and crisis support services was carried out by Salford City Council and Salford Citizen’s Advice (SCA). It found that just under half of the women who responded (48%) said they had struggled at some point to afford sanitary protection while a third (28%) said they had avoided paying bills to use the money on sanitary ware. Almost all (98%) said they regularly had to go without proper protection and use inadequate substitutes such as socks, tissues or rags while a fifth (17.5%) said they had been excluded from doing something important because of inadequate sanitary protection. Deputy City Mayor Paula Boshell said raising awareness of the problems faced by low-income families and securing the donation was part of the city’s work with businesses to get maximum social value for every pound spent in Salford. She said: City Mayor Paul Dennett added: Mayor Dennett said the council will also work with Greater Manchester charities to expand their operations into Salford, encourage local food bank donation points to accept sanitary products and join national campaigns to put pressure on the government to make sanitary products freely available in schools and to women receiving certain targeted benefits. Councillor Kate Lewis, one of the councillors who first raised the issue, added: Ruth Doyle, Regional Managing Director at Aldi, said: Gemma Griffin, help through crisis advisor from CAB said:
