Aldi has launched a search for new locations to build shops in and around Glasgow - and they're asking for your help.

As part of its 'rapid expansion plan' the supermarket giant is on the lookout for 'freehold town-centre or edge-of-town sites' that are around 1.5 acres in size.

Each new site will need to be able to accommodate a 20,000 sq feet shop with room for 100 parking spaces.

Priority areas have been named as Cathcart and Clarkston.

Aldi has also said that they are eager to find locations that are close to the main road with good visibility and access.

Shop bosses will offer a 'finder's fee' of either 1.5 per cent of a freehold price or 10 per cent of the first year’s rent for leasehold sites for people, including members of the public, who recommend a suitable location.

George Brown, National Property Director at Aldi UK, said: “By opening more Aldi stores, we can provide affordable, high-quality food to even more people.

“But despite our growth in recent years, some people still don’t have access to a local store, which is why it is our mission to continue on with our ambitious plans and change that.

“Our finder’s fee is available to anyone who can find Aldi an appropriate site so we’d encourage people to share any suitable suggestions and get it touch.”
