Aldi has announced plans to open over 10 new stores in the coming months, as the retailer targets a total of 35 store openings in 2024.

New stores in Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, and Olney Park, Milton Keynes, are set to open in the next month, whilst stores in Aberdare in Wales, Broughty Ferry in Dundee and Leytonstone in London will welcome Aldi stores in the near future.

The openings form part of the retailer’s long-term target of 1,500 UK stores, with Aldi investing £550m into its store estate in 2024 alone.

Jonathan Neale, real estate managing director at Aldi UK, said: “At Aldi, we want to ensure that high quality yet affordable food is available to everyone which is why we are continuing to expand across the UK.

“We have already opened several new stores this year, from Skelmersdale in Lancashire and Newport in Wales to Castle Gresley in Derbyshire and High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, and now we’re excited to bring Aldi to even more communities over the coming months.”

The full list of Aldi stores opening in the UK over the coming months includes:

  • Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire
  • Olney Park, Milton Keynes
  • Aberdare, Wales
  • Broughty Ferry, Dundee
  • Leytonstone, London
  • Beckton, London
  • Middleton, Leeds
