Aldi reveals new store openings

Aldi is set to open more than 10 new stores across the UK in the coming months.

New stores in Waltham Cross in Hertfordshire and Olney Park in Milton Keynes are set to open in the next month, while towns such as Aberdare in Wales, Broughty Ferry in Dundee and Leytonstone in London are also gearing up to welcome new Aldi stores in the near future.

The UK's fourth-largest supermarket, which also opened a new store in Goole earlier this month, is on track to open 35 new stores in total this year, with each creating around 40 new jobs on average.

The openings form part of Aldi's long-term target of 1,500 stores in the UK - with the supermarket set to invest £550 million in expanding its UK footprint this year 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."

Store assistants at Aldi receive a starting pay of £12.40 per hour and those based in London will receive a minimum of £13.65 per hour.

Aldi also remains the only supermarket to offer paid breaks, which for the average store colleague is worth more than £900 a year.
