28th September 2023 | Jack Oliver

Aldi has revealed its priority locations for new supermarkets as it looks to hit its long-term target of 1,500 stores.

The retailer – which opened its 1,000th UK store in Woking earlier in September – is set to invest £1.4bn into its estate over the next two years.

The areas which Aldi is prioritising include:

The retailer is searching for freehold town-centre, edge-of-centre, and retail park sites suitable for development. Ideal sites will be able to accommodate a 20,000 sq foot store with around 100 parking spaces. Locations near a main road with good visibility and access are preferred.

Richard Thornton, communications director at Aldi UK, said: “The areas we’ve identified in our latest list are places where there is demand for stores and we are committed to continue investing until we can bring our quality products and unbeatable prices to as many people as possible.”
