Hundreds of people queued this morning for the opening of a new Aldi store in Aberdeen.
The Cornhill Shopping Arcade unit is one of a package of six former Co-op shops acquired by Aldi last summer.
Queues could be seen along Foresterhill Road as the new store prepared to welcome its first customers.
The first 100 customers were handed golden tickets as part of a celebratory lucky draw.
One man won a free TV from his golden envelope and another took home a digital alarm clock.
The announcement of the new shop comes after the chain announced it will open 70 new stores in the UK next year as part of plans to increase supermarket numbers from 659 to 1,000 by 2022.
