Aldi is on track to open 35 new stores in total this year

Aldi has revealed their new stores which are set to open in the coming months.

The supermarket will open more than 10 new stores across the UK as it looks to bring its low prices to even more shoppers.


Aldi is on track to open 35 new stores in total this year, with each creating around 40 new jobs on average.

Its latest store was opened earlier this month in Goole, East Yorkshire, and forms part of Aldi’s long-term target of 1,500 stores in the UK.

The supermarket is set to invest £550million 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.”

Full list of Aldi stores set to open in the UK over the coming months:

  • Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire
  • Olney Park, Milton Keynes
  • Aberdare, Wales
  • Broughty Ferry, Dundee
  • Leytonstone, London
  • Beckton, London
  • Middleton, Leeds
  • Rugeley, Staffordshire
  • Gosforth, Tyne and Wear
  • Holloway Road, London
  • Shepshed, Leicester

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.

The supermarket was just crowned as the cheapest supermarket for 65 different products in June, 2024.

The study by Which? found that Aldi was £19.10 cheaper than Sainsbury's and £15.89 less expensive than Tesco for a comparable shopping list.

In June, the average bill for a trolley of 65 items at Aldi was £118.41. This was £32.60 less than at Waitrose, which was the most expensive, at £151.01.

Waitrose was found to be nearly 28 per cent more expensive than Aldi for the same products in June.

Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi UK, said: "We're thrilled to have been named the cheapest supermarket for the sixth time this year – reaffirming that Aldi prices just can't be matched, even with a loyalty card.

LATEST DEVELOPMENTS:

"After all, there's only one supermarket where every price is an Aldi price.

"But it's not just consistently low prices that shoppers get with us, it's also award-winning quality."

Which? considered Nectar and Clubcard loyalty prices in their monthly study examining the cost of groceries and household essentials.

Aldi was £19.10 cheaper than Sainsbury's Nectar and £15.89 cheaper than Tesco Clubcard for the same list of groceries.
