ALDI inaugurates its second supermarket in Guipúzcoa

This Wednesday, March 4, it opened its doors to the public after seven months of development and one of fitting out and equipping.

The one in Eibar is the second establishment of the German operator in the province of Guipúzcoa and the twelfth in the Basque Country, and represents for SiGLA, Servicios e Inversiones en GLA, the third operation with the German operator, after a due diligence in Logroño and another recent investment in a newly created establishment in Gernika. In both cases, these are financial investments created and coordinated by SiGLA and intended for investment companies and family offices that are looking for turnkey products with high and long-term profitability.

As in Gernika, it is an establishment in a unique building (free standing) but in this case it is located on a plot of land with a steep slope, which allows the development of three floors, each of them with ground access to the street. On the upper floor is the Sales Room, with 1,050m2, and auxiliary rooms, as well as the access ramps from the parking lot. This floor, the first in the building, is located on the ground floor of Otaola Street and is where the main door to the pedestrian public is located. Perpendicular to this, Barrenengua Street develops on a slope, which allows vehicles to enter the parking lot flush with the street. This 1,255m2 plant has 31 parking spaces. Below we have the basement, also used for parking, with 35 more spaces and vehicle exit through a ramp of just 85cm. unevenness to the street.


The works began this summer with the objective, now achieved, of being operational before the arrival of spring. In this case it was a site with the existence of an old industrial warehouse, so the demolition work, soil decontamination and consolidation of the basement walls of the existing building have continued until late autumn.

With this new Aldi, Eibar has benefited from an urban remodeling of the area, since its construction has involved the creation of two new green spaces, a rest area, sidewalks expanded by more than two meters and the creation of an island between the street and the avenue; an improvement action that totals around 2,000m2.
