New Aldi supermarket for Mao

Post by kieronf » February 6th, 2021, 4:56 pm

Aldi will be building a new supermarket in Mao just 500yds back from Lidl. I am using Mao, not to be poncey but the govt here has just decreed that all official signage for Mahon should be replaced with the Catalan - Mao. You would think they had more important things to focus on (and spend money on too).

Interesting news indeed especially 500ydsfrom Lidl , good completion I suppose for residents pockets !.
Regards the new signage for Mao and the council's decision on where to spend money never fails to amaze me , there in Menorca or here near to me.
A traffic speed calming project to slow a rural road, which involves many small speed bumps ,where you have to slow down and steer so the tyres just clip the edges .
Only been finished less than six months .
Tarmac speed bumps are clearly breaking up already on the edges.!!...
I wonder what that cost.

That's my rant over. .......Mr Tigi's off to lay down in a darkened room

Place name spellings changes have been occurring for years. I believe it depends on which party is in power. At one time the Mahon/Mao council tried to use Maho, not sure what happened with that eye dear.

But .... On the bright side you have the "middle of Lidl" plus soon to have the "middle of Aldi" Oh happy days.
