Aldi on the lookout for hundreds of new store sites
Aldi has has released a list of the main locations where it would like to build new stores in the UK.
Aldi said each site should be able to accommodate a 20,000 square foot store and around 100 parking spaces.
George Brown, national property director at Aldi UK, said: “By opening more Aldi stores, we can provide affordable, high-quality food to even more people.
“But despite our growth in recent years, some people still don’t have access to a local store, which is why it is our mission to continue on with our ambitious growth plans and change that.”
The supermarket is offering a finder’s fee for people who recommend a site, including members of the public. This is either 1.5% of a freehold price or 10% of the first year’s rent for leasehold sites.
Brown added: “Our finder’s fee is available to anyone who can find Aldi an appropriate property so we’d encourage people to share any suitable suggestions and get it touch.”
The full list of areas Aldi is targeting include:
- Cambridge South
- Drylaw, Edinburgh
- Gerrards Cross/Chalfont St Peter
- Ladysmill, Falkirk
- Leicester Fosse Park
- Lightwood, Stoke on Trent
- Newcastle Upon Tyne
- North Leeds
- South Normanton
- St Albans
- Tunbridge Wells
- West Didsbury
