Aldi to open five new stores in the coming weeks
Aldi has announced plans to open five new stores across the UK in the next five weeks.
The move is part of the supermarket’s commitment to invest more than £400 million in store development this year.
The new stores will be situated in Southampton, Whittlesey, Norwich, Castle Donington and Porthcawl. Each opening will create an average of around 40 new jobs.
George Brown, real estate director at Aldi UK, said: “Demand for Aldi has never been higher, and more than two thirds of British households already shop with us.
“However, there are still too many people for whom shopping at Aldi isn’t a convenient option and we’re committed to changing that, giving even more people access to our award-winning products at unbeatable prices.
“To meet that demand, we are investing in new stores up and down the country and won’t stop until we’ve made quality, affordable food accessible to everyone.”
Aldi currently operates more than 990 UK stores.
