Someone mentioned on facebook who lives there  earlier this evening , the supermarket is going to be ALDI. Obviously  the said supermarket ( if its true) is  being built on the large car park at the back side  of the bullring as its the only place with spare land. to build it. Hopefully Cubsur can make a visit on his travels and let us know any updates.

I have heard mention of a new ALDI supermarket being built there. I will be going by that way on Friday and will take a look if I remember.

It's a pretty big area. Even if a supermarket is built, there is still room for the parking necessary for the thousands of cars that would be there if the arena is used for other activities.

Plenty going on, lots of digging and scraping and lots of dust as Richard K said.

The building permit sign on the fence does not say what is being built there. The only detail is 'urbanisation'. It's valid for a year.

(As an aside, the two bars that are 'part of' the bullring were both open at lunchtime but devoid of customers.)

There is some serious earth moving going on there. The level of the land next to the bullring building is being lowered by several metres.

Aldi just got windows couple of days ago, probably two to three months away from opening. It is huge construction taking all the space between three streets and the bullring. Car parking alone has two levels above ground (probably below too), absolutely massive. I also have photos but not sure what service do you use to post photos -- let me know.

"what service do you use to post photos -- let me know."

I  use postimage.org

It's free. Once you have created an album and uploaded pictures, it creates a 'hotlink for forum' code. Copy that by clicking the icon to the right of the line.

Create your post here as normal and paste in the code. Your pictures will be included.

The ALDI store and next door car park are progressing. I agree it will be a few weeks before either is open.

On other forums I use, you simply copy and paste, or there is a button that takes you to your folders and you just open the picture from there. Can admin not sort that out for this forum rather than to go through all that palaver?

Hmm even with postimg pasting hotlink for forums " https://postimg.cc/zL3f1q1B - https://i.postimg.cc/HL98XLZQ/aldi.png</a>" (without quotes) seems to strip url from bb codes? anyway link is above. Oh bbcodes are stripped even within quotes, quote above contains url and img bbcodes.

Building work continues, building is substantially complete outside at least. lots of concrete being poured and much activity at the parking area. I will see if I can get a picture later this week.

Meanwhile any code to link to images using postimg (and probably others) should look like this

Since I can see the building from my terrace, few days ago there was a lot of activity after the dark with lights inside turned on, so I could see store is fully stacked with shelves. Few of the people inside looked like non-builders, most probably Aldi stuff making final shelf layout. Windows are usually non transparent but with the correct lighting everything is visible inside. It looked like very complete inside, walls, floors, shelves, no hanging wires etc.

Aldi seems almost complete but no news when it can open. Last couple of days they added few trees and what seems like grass on the few slopes next to what looks like main entrance. Actually I cannot figure out yet where they intend to have main entrance, what looks like it does not make much sense - directly facing Rotunda do Globo. There must be something on the other side towards bullring?

The ALDI website says it should have opened a week ago.

I have it on my agenda to have a look on Thursday when I am out shopping. Camera will be in hand.

It will be called ALDI Monumental by the way and will be open from 0730 to 2300 every day.

Now on aldi.pt home page only says 'soon'. Lots of construction workers around and definitely not open yet.
