Aldi Seeks New Store Locations Across the UK

Aldi has shared its latest priority list of locations where it hopes to build new stores across the UK.

Last month, the UK’s fourth largest supermarket asked people to suggest where new Aldi stores are needed most.

After receiving many requests, Aldi has reviewed the list and is planning its store expansion over the coming years.

The priority locations include:

  • Woodford, London
  • Surbiton, London
  • South Croydon, London
  • Notting Hill, London
  • Walthamstow, London
  • Beckenham, London
  • Bromley, London
  • Barnet, London
  • Redhill, Surrey
  • Aldershot, Hampshire
  • Haywards Heath, West Sussex
  • Burgess Hill, West Sussex
  • Chatham, Kent
  • Cheadle, Greater Manchester
  • Chorlton, Manchester
  • Formby, Liverpool
  • Newark, Nottinghamshire
  • Chesterfield, Derbyshire
  • Wellingborough, Northamptonshire
  • Rayleigh, Essex
  • Brentwood, Essex
  • Dorchester, Dorset
  • Clarkston, Scotland
  • Cathcart, Scotland
  • Penzance, Cornwall
  • Warwick, Warwickshire
  • Bath, Somerset

Aldi has been rapidly expanding in recent years. More people are shopping there for its low prices and high quality.

The retailer has over 1,020 stores and aims to have more than 1,500 stores in the UK.

In addition to the priority list, Aldi has found other locations in the UK where there is demand. This includes over 100 locations within the M25 and another 100 in the wider South East.

Jonathan Neale, Managing Director of National Real Estate at Aldi UK, said: “We want to make high quality food accessible to all, but we can’t do that while there are still some towns and areas that either don’t have an Aldi or have capacity for additional stores.”

“We recognize there is huge demand in certain regions for more stores, which is why we decided to get the public’s input on our latest list of priority locations. They have helped us identify where demand is greatest and we will continue to work to bring Aldi to as many people as possible.”

Anyone who knows of a site that might suit Aldi’s needs should contact [email protected].

Each site should be able to fit a 20,000 sq ft store with about 100 parking spaces. Ideally, the location should be near a main road with good visibility and access.

Aldi is also looking for smaller sites within the M25 for its Aldi Local store format, which are about 5,000 sq ft in size.
