Aldi says that sales hit £1bn for the first time in the four weeks to Christmas Eve.
The German discount supermarket chain reports that, compared to last year, total sales rose by 7.9%.
The figures are published as Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and M&S prepare to release their Christmas financials throughout this week.
While Aldi’s figures are good, growth is slower than in previous years and the company does not release like-for-like sales data which strips out the impact of new stores whereas the UK retailers do.
