“There are still too many people for whom shopping at Aldi isn’t a convenient option. We’re committed to changing that and opening nearly four new stores a week before Christmas clearly demonstrates our progress with this,” Aldi UK national property director Ciaran Aldridge said.

“The new stores bring us one step closer to our goal of making our award-winning products at unbeatable prices easily accessible to even more shoppers across the country, and we look forward to welcoming local customers in for their weekly shop.”

The openings follow on from Aldi launching new stores in Cheltenham, Portlethen and South Harrow in October.
