German supermarket chain Aldi has decided to return to Caerphilly town, four years after it closed its original branch.
The discount retailer has submitted a planning application for a supermarket at Crossways Retail Park.
The chain originally built and opened a store on Bedwas Road in 2007, before closing unexpectedly in 2010. The building is now home to B&M Bargains.
The new supermarket will occupy a site next to Dreams, and initial groundwork has already begun.
The building will have shop floor space of 1,254sqm with a 100 space car park.
A transport statement submitted as part of the planning application from site owners Gallagher Developments Caerphilly Ltd suggests the traffic impact of the store would be negligible.
Caerphilly Observer asked Aldi for more information on the new store but a spokesperson was unavailable.
