Aldi, the popular supermarket chain in the UK, has announced plans to open five new stores in the coming weeks.
This expansion is part of Aldi’s ongoing commitment to store development, with a budget of over £400 million allocated for this year.
Currently operating over 990 stores in the UK, Aldi aims to make their products more accessible to a wider customer base.
The new store locations include Southampton and Whittlesey, set to open in June.
In early July, Aldi will open additional stores in Norwich, Castle Donington, and Porthcawl.
These openings will contribute to the growth of local economies by creating approximately 40 new jobs on average at each store.
Aldi prides itself on providing competitive wages to its employees.
Store Assistants can earn up to £11 per hour nationally and £12.45 per hour within the M25, with paid breaks included.
Starting from July, these wages will increase to £11.40 and £12.85 respectively.
George Brown, Real Estate Director at Aldi UK, expressed the supermarket’s commitment to meeting the high demand for their products.
He stated that while a significant portion of British households already shop at Aldi, there are still many people for whom Aldi is not a convenient option.
By investing in new store openings across the country, Aldi aims to make their quality, affordable food accessible to a greater number of people.
The following is a list of the new store locations set to open in the coming weeks: Hedge End Retail Park in Southampton, Eastrea Road in Whittlesey, Station Road in Castle Donington, William Frost Way in Norwich, and Eastern Promenade in Porthcawl.
