Bolton has been earmarked for an other Aldi supermarket.

The discount supermarket has revealed two more areas in and around Bolton where bosses would like to open new stores as part of a £1.4bn over the next two years.

The Bolton News reported this week Aldi bosses announced they are looking to open 500 stores across the UK, including in Radcliffe, and now it has revealed it is looking for sites in  Bradshaw and Worsley are also areas bosses hope to open stores.

In its annual trading update, Aldi said it had attracted around a million extra customers in the past 12 months with a new generation of savvy shoppers turning their back on traditional, full priced supermarkets. 

Britain’s fourth largest supermarket, which opened its 1,000th store earlier this month, is committed to a long-term target of 1,500 stores in the UK – meaning it is on the hunt for more locations across the UK. 

As well as hoping to open stores in these local areas, Aldi also has plans to open stores in West Didsbury, Wigan, Lowton, Cheadle and Bramhall.

Aldi is searching for freehold town-centre, edge-of-centre, and retail park sites suitable for property development.

The sites should be able to accommodate a 20,000 sq. foot store with around 100 parking spaces.

Ideally the location will be near a main road with good visibility and access. 

The supermarket will also be investing in the development of new and expanded distribution centres, including its new distribution centre in Leicestershire. 

Richard Thornton, Communications Director at Aldi UK, said: “We want to make our great value groceries accessible to all, and to do that we need more stores, particularly in towns and areas that don’t have an Aldi already.  

“The areas we’ve identified in our latest list are places where there is demand for stores and we are committed to continue investing until we can bring our quality products and unbeatable prices to as many people as possible.” 

Anybody who has a site that may fit Aldi’s requirements should contact
