Aldi to open 15 new stores before end of 2021

Aldi has announced plans to open 15 new stores across the UK before the end of the year.

The budget supermarket already has over 930 stores in the UK.

The move is part of the retailer’s wider ambition to invest £1.3 billion in the UK market by 2023.

Aldi said that it plans to open 100 new stores over the next two years.

“There are still too many people for whom shopping at Aldi isn’t a convenient option. We’re committed to changing that and opening nearly four new stores a week before Christmas clearly demonstrates our progress with this,” said Ciaran Aldridge, national property director, Aldi UK. “The new stores bring us one step closer to our goal of making our award-winning products at unbeatable prices easily accessible to even more shoppers across the country, and we look forward to welcoming local customers in for their weekly shop.”

The openings follow on from Aldi launching new stores in Cheltenham, Portlethen and South Harrow in October.

Last month, Aldi also opened its 50th London store in Dalston.

Full list of stores opening before the end of the year:

• Windsor, Berkshire
• Luton, Bedfordshire
• Stamford, Lincolnshire
• Neath, Wales
• Govan, Scotland
• Edinburgh, Scotland
• Bedlington, Northumberland
• Biddulph, Staffordshire
• Cumnock, Scotland
• Orpington, London
• Hamilton, Scotland
• Llanelli, Wales
• Cheam, London
• Tamworth, Staffordshire
• Poole, Dorset
