ALDI has quashed rumours that it plans to move to the Bunnings site on Lake Road.
An ALDI Australia spokesperson said: “We can confirm that we have no plans to relocate our Port Macquarie store.”
The Port Macquarie ALDI store is located in Hughes Place.
Meanwhile, Bunnings Warehouse will move from Lake Road to 18 John Oxley Drive.
Work has started on the John Oxley Drive development.
A new Bunnings Warehouse will underpin the development.
The new Bunnings Warehouse Port Macquarie store is expected to be operating by early 2019.
