BUNDABERG'S new Aldi store is open and shoppers say it's the best yet.

The Maryborough St store was packed with bargain-loving shoppers on Wednesday morning.

Judith Singho said having an Aldi store in the city was a big relief as she usually had to go elsewhere.

"We usually go to the Sugarland shop with my nephew," she said.

"It's different, it's more wide."

Rebecca Smith said she wasn't an Aldi regular, but had wanted to purchase a washing machine at the new store after finding that Avoca Aldi had sold out.

The Bundy mum said she was pleasantly surprised.

"It looks good," she said.

"It's huge, it's really nice.

"They ran out of washing machines at Avoca so I thought I'd come down and I've bought a washing machine."

Weekly Aldi shopper Vincent Boccalatte said the new store was the best he'd seen.

"This is beautiful," he said.

"This is better than any of them."

He said he enjoyed Aldi's bargains, including a $119 convection microwave he'd added to his shopping trolley.

"You get some good bargains," he said.

Mr Boccalatte said his daughter was a fan of Aldi's range of gluten free foods.

"She reckons they taste better than the other brands," he said.

A spokesperson for Aldi said the new look was a unique touch for the store.

"Aldi is excited to be opening our new store at Bundaberg Plaza," the spokesperson said.

"Bundaberg Plaza has been purpose-built with new innovations at the forefront of mind.

"It will offer an enhanced shopping experience for our customers with better product displays, improved navigation and modern styling."

The spokesperson said shoppers could expect everything from shelving to displays to be a little different to their other stores.

"New features include redesigned shelving, expanded wooden produce bays, as well as extended energy efficient chillers," they said.

"As energy management remains a key priority for Aldi, the store has energy efficient LED lighting. There will also be new point-of-sale displays and store signage.

"While we're delighted to be introducing these innovations, we want our customers to know they won't lead to higher prices."
