Aldi has been on a rapid expansion drive in recent years, helping it grow its market share to a record 9%

Aldi has made public a list of prospective sites for new stores around the UK and has offered a finder’s fee to anyone who can point out potential locations.

The fifth-largest supermarket in the UK has been rapidly expanding in recent years, which has helped it increase its market share to a record 9%.

The German-owned discount retailer, which already has more than 960 locations around the UK, is looking for freehold properties with a minimum size of 1.5 acres in the town center or on the outskirts of the city to erect new stores.

Additionally, they intend to construct new stores in 55 locations, among them Brentwood, Liverpool, Sunderland, and Wigan.

It seeks locations that can accommodate 20,000 square feet of retail space with approximately 100 parking spaces, particularly close to a major thoroughfare with good visibility and access.

For those who successfully recommend a site, including members of the public, the store will pay a finder’s fee equal to either 1.5 percent of the freehold price or 10 percent of the first year’s rent for leasehold sites.

‘By opening additional Aldi stores, we can supply inexpensive, high-quality food to even more people,’ said George Brown, national property director for Aldi UK.

However, despite our recent expansion, some people still lack access to a neighborhood store. For this reason, it is our goal to continue implementing our aggressive expansion strategies and to remedy this situation.

We invite people to submit any acceptable proposals and contact us since we will pay anyone who can locate a suitable property for Aldi.

After gaining a million more customers in the previous year, Aldi was shown to be challenging the supremacy of Britain’s “Big Four” supermarkets in April.

As consumers look for less expensive, no-frills solutions due to the cost of living problem, the budget chain appears likely to surpass Morrisons as the fourth-largest grocery store.

With the increase, the German-owned discount retailer has nearly tripled its market share over the past ten years to 8.8%, while Morrisons has steadily decreased to 9.5%.

Tesco leads the industry in sales with 27% of total sales, followed by Sainsbury’s (15%) and Asda (14.1%), all of which are down from a year ago.

Low-cost The only other grocery chain to have a gain in market share from 2021 to the present is Lidl, which presently holds a 6.6% share.

Aldi and Lidl now account for nearly one penny of every six pounds spent at checkouts.

It was revealed earlier this month that Aldi is the first UK store to introduce summertime dog ice cream.

The cheap merchant claims that the tasty snack is being offered in shops all around the country.

Beechdean Doggy Ice Cream is made entirely of plants and is sold in packs of four for £2.99 (110ml each serving).

Local ice cream vendors in Brighton, Essex, and Scotland have joined forces with Aldi to make the treat accessible to dogs with a sweet tooth in addition to being sold in stores.
