A discount supermarket is looking for potential site to open a new supermarket.

Aldi is looking to open 500 stores across the UK  - with one in Radcliffe - as part of a two year £1.3 billion investment into expansion.

Radcliffe has been  earmarked as an area bosses hope open a store .

Aldi is hoping to grow their portfolio to around 1,500 stores with 20 expected to open before the end of 2023. 

Radcliffe has been highlighted as one of many ‘proposed sites’ where the chain would like to open.

A spokesperson from the company said: “There are currently no planned stores in Radcliffe, but we are always looking at potential sites and Radcliffe is an area we hope to find a store.”

Requirements for a new site state that the area must meet a minimum two acres to accommodate 18-20k square foot unit and at least 100 parking spaces.

It must have prominent main road frontage; being either central or on the edge of a town centre with a population of 15,000 or more; and the location must also be at least 1.5km from an existing store.

The supermarket chain recently opened their 1000th store in the country in Woking, Surrey. 

Aldi UK and Ireland CEO Giles Hurley said: "Opening our 1,000th store is a huge milestone and wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our 40,000 incredible colleagues.

"Our popularity is growing, and there is huge demand for people to have an Aldi store near to them to increase shoppers’ access to our unbeatable prices.

“The next phase of our expansion will involve another 500 new stores over the coming years. It is a long-term target and is not a ceiling to our ambition to have an Aldi store close to everyone in the UK.”
