The UK’s fourth-largest supermarket, Aldi recently launched a new store in Goole and says it is on track to open 35 new stores this year, each creating approximately 40 jobs.

The openings are part of Aldi’s long-term goal of reaching 1,500 stores in the UK, with a £550 million investment planned for expanding its footprint this year.

Jonathan Neale, Real Estate Managing Director at Aldi UK, said: “At Aldi, we want to ensure that high quality yet affordable food is available to everyone which is why we are continuing to expand across the UK.

“We have already opened several new stores this year, from Skelmersdale in Lancashire and Newport in Wales to Castle Gresley in Derbyshire and High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, and now we’re excited to bring Aldi to even more communities over the coming months.”

Aldi was founded in 1946 in Essen, Germany, by brothers Karl and Theo Albrecht. It entered the UK market in 1990, opening its first store in Birmingham - since then, it has expanded rapidly, becoming a popular choice among British shoppers.

It is known for its commitment to low prices, which has attracted budget-conscious shoppers, especially during economic downturns and times of financial uncertainty.

Despite the low prices, Aldi maintains a reputation for high-quality products, particularly in its own-brand ranges, which often receive accolades and awards.

The majority of products sold at Aldi are private labels, allowing the company to control quality and reduce costs associated with middlemen.

The supermarket keeps costs low by maintaining a no-frills approach, including minimal advertising, basic store designs and encouraging customers to bring their own bags.
