Aldi has revealed its latest list of priority locations across the country where it is hoping to build new stores.  

Last month, the UK’s fourth largest supermarket called on the nation to get in touch to highlight where in Britain needed new Aldi stores most.

With thousands of requests received, Aldi has now reviewed the list of locations and used it to develop its store search over the coming years. 

Priority locations across the UK where Aldi is currently seeking sites include: 

  • Woodford, London
  • Surbiton, London
  • South Croydon, London

  • Walthamstow, London
  • Beckenham, London
  • Bromley, London
  • Barnet, London
  • Redhill, Surrey
  • Aldershot, Hampshire
  • Haywards Heath, West Sussex
  • Burgess Hill, West Sussex
  • Chatham, Kent

  • Newark, Nottinghamshire
  • Chesterfield, Derbyshire

  • Penzance, Cornwall
  • Warwick, Warwickshire

Aldi has been on a rapid expansion drive in recent years and has seen its popularity soar as shoppers switch to the supermarket for its lower prices and great quality.

The retailer currently has more than 1,020 stores and is committed to continuing towards its long-term target of more than 1,500 stores across the UK.

In addition to this list, the supermarket has identified further locations throughout the UK where it believes there is demand for Aldi, including more than 100 within the M25 and a further 100 in the wider South East.

Jonathan Neale, Managing Director of National Real Estate at Aldi UK, said: “We want to make high quality food accessible to all, but we can’t do that while there are still some towns and areas that either don’t have an Aldi or have capacity for additional stores.  

“We recognise there is huge demand in certain regions for more stores, which is why we decided to get the public’s input on our latest list of priority locations. They have helped us identify where demand is greatest and we will continue to work to bring Aldi to as many people as possible.” 

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

Each site should be able to accommodate a 20,000 sq ft store with around 100 parking spaces. Ideally the location will be near a main road with good visibility and access. 

The supermarket says it is also on the lookout for sites to accommodate its Aldi Local store format inside the M25, which are around 5,000 sq ft in size.
