Ciaran Aldridge, National Property Director at Aldi UK, said: “Aldi is growing rapidly and we are welcoming around a million new customers into our stores every year.

"There are also hundreds of towns across the UK where there is not an Aldi, meaning there are hundreds of thousands of people who can’t easily access the high quality, affordable food our customers love.

“We are willing to explore all opportunities, including developer-led schemes or existing retail units.”

The locations targeted for the new Aldi stores include Bracknell, Maidenhead, Reading, Slough, Windsor, Wokingham, Newbury and Thatcham.

Each new site should be around 1.5 acres, able to hold a 20,000 sq ft store with room for around 100 parking spaces, ideally on a prominent main road with good visibility and access.
