An Aldi colleague in Paisley is celebrating a work anniversary milestone this month after working at the supermarket for 20 years.  

Julie Purcell, Store Assistant at Aldi in the Fulbar Road store in Paisley, first joined the supermarket in 2002. Julie loves working with the public and thrives in a busy atmosphere. 

During her time at Aldi, Julie has seen the introduction of scanners at tills, a clocking-in system and the team grow from just five colleagues to over 30.  

Speaking about her long service, Julie said: “It has been a privilege to work at Aldi for 20 years and I’ve really enjoyed being part of Aldi’s journey. It’s incredible to see how far we’ve come. I’ve loved working here and want to thank my amazing colleagues who make it such a great place to come to work every day. I’m looking forward to the next 20.” 

When asked about her favourite products at Aldi, Julie replied: “I’m no stranger to a Specially Selected Ribeye Steak, three Browning’s the Baker potato scones and a fried egg for breakfast, which I have more than I should perhaps admit!” 

Richard Holloway, Regional Managing Director for Scotland said: “Without the hard work and dedication of our colleagues, we wouldn’t be able to provide customers with the excellent and efficient service we’ve become known for. 

“Colleagues like Julie are the cornerstone of our business and I thank her for her continued dedication throughout the last 20 years.”
