Aldi looking to build new stores in these 13 Surrey places

Aldi has announced it will open 100 new stores across the UK over the next two years – and it is targeting more than a dozen locations in Surrey.

The supermarket chain has pledged to spend £1.3 billion by 2023 in a bid to further grow its retail estate, as it presses ahead with plans to open an average of one new store a week.

Aldi, which now has more than 920 stores in the UK, is searching for freehold town-centre or edge-of-centre sites suitable for property development.

The retailer says it is on the lookout for sites that are big enough to accommodate a 20,000 sq ft store and around 100 dedicated parking spaces, preferably on a prominent main road and with good visibility and access.

Additionally, Aldi wants to develop new and expanded distribution centres.

“Looking ahead, we are excited to provide millions of new customers with access to Aldi’s award-winning quality and unbeatable value as we create even more places and more ways to shop with us.”
