Aldi is set to open 12 new stores in the UK by the end of 2023.

In September 2023 Aldi revealed plans to open 500 new stores across the UK, including 20 before the end of 2023. 

The plan is said to be part of a two-year £1.3 billion investment into expansion and would see the supermarket giant's UK portfolio grow to 1,500 stores.

But despite outlining proposed sites where it would like to build - including in Cardiff, Oxford, Twickenham and Birmingham - it had not revealed the location of any new stores. Until now.
