Aldi reveals plans to build new stores in South Shields and Jarrow
Aldi has announced it is looking for locations for new stores in South Shields and Jarrow as it plans to open 100 new shops across the UK over the next two years.
Aldi, which now has more than 920 stores across the UK, is searching for freehold town-centre or edge-of-centre sites suitable for property development.
The supermarket says it is looking for sites that are big enough to accommodate a 20,000 sq ft store and around 100 dedicated parking spaces, ideally on a prominent main road and with good visibility and access.
Richard Thornton, Communications Director at Aldi UK, said: “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.”
