Aldi are looking to “almost double” the number of stores in London and will create 2,400 more jobs in a multimillion pound expansion programme with the M25.
In recent weeks Aldi has become the UK’s fourth largest supermarket overtaking Morrisons as they have recorded strong sales growth.
Last week the supermarket chain announced they are to create 6,000 jobs across the UK and they are offering property agents a finders fee of either 1.5% of freehold price or 10% for the first year of rent for leasehold sites.
Aldi are looking for locations large enough for their standard 20,000 sq ft stores and will also need parking spaces to hold around 100 vehicles.
Ben Shotter, regional managing director at Aldi, said, “We strongly believe that access to affordable, high-quality food is a right, not a privilege.
“But we’re conscious that there are still many areas, particularly in the capital and within the M25, that don’t have access to an Aldi.
“As a result, too many people have to make do with big prices at the big supermarkets. We want to give more people a new Aldi store with our award-winning products at unbeatable prices.
“We are looking for locations across the UK, but particularly in London.”
