Booming budget supermarket chain Aldi says it plans to open 100 new stores in the UK in the next two years.
And the German giant is searching for sites in 20 areas of West Yorkshire as part of its £1.3bn plan.
Aldi, which currently has 920 UK supermarkets, says it is looking for sites big enough to accommodate a 1,858 sq m store with approximately 100 parking spaces.
A site next to a prominent main road with good visibility and access is preferable, Aldi said today (Thursday).
Aldi will be expanding existing distribution centres and building new ones.
Richard Thornton, communications director at Aldi UK, said: “We’re continuing to gain even more customers – with over 60 per cent of UK households shopping with Aldi in the last year.
“Our focus is on expanding our store estate, making sure Aldi is accessible to as many of these new shoppers across the country as possible. Looking ahead, we are excited to provide millions of new customers with access to Aldi’s award-winning quality and unbeatable value as we create even more places and more ways to shop with us.”
