Aldi is looking for locations in Harrogate, York and Scarborough

Store bosses today announced they are committing to a new long-term target of 1,500 stores in the UK, which will see the company invest billions of pounds into the UK economy.

Aldi is now Britain’s fourth largest grocer and one in ten pounds spent in British supermarkets ends up in its own tills*.

The retailer is also the fastest growing supermarket in the UK, attracting customers from all major rivals as people switch to Aldi for its low prices.


With two thirds of Brits shopping at the discounter, Aldi is aiming to open more stores in more parts of the UK to meet growing demand. The company will open a further 20 new stores before the end of the year as part of its £1.3bn two-year investment plan.

Its plan to open 500 new stores to reach its target of 1,500 means the company is looking for more locations across the UK.

The North Yorkshire locations listed for search are in York, Harrogate and Scarborough.

Aldi currently has three locations in York: Fulford Road, Waterland and Kathryn Avenue, Huntington.

There are also two sites in Selby, three in Harrogate/Knaresborough, one in Ripon, one in Thursk, one in Sherburn and one in Pocklington. There is no store in the Scarborough area or in Malton.

Today’s 1000th opening took place in Woking, Surrey.

Giles Hurley, CEO of Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “The opening of our 1,000th branch is a huge milestone and would not have been possible without the hard work and commitment of our 40,000 incredible colleagues.”

“Our popularity is growing and there is great demand for an Aldi store near them, making it easier for shoppers to access our unbeatable prices.

“The next phase of our expansion will see the creation of a further 500 new branches in the coming years. It is a long-term goal and does not represent a cap on our aim to have an Aldi store close to everyone in the UK.”

Aldi opened its first British store in Stechford, Birmingham in 1990.

To support its expansion, the company is offering a finder’s fee to those who help it find suitable locations.

Aldi said on its websites: “We continue to expand our store portfolio and we were able to open many more stores in 2022.”

“Our ambitious property investment and development program aims to continue our growth, so we are always on the lookout for great new locations and existing commercial properties.”

“Find a suitable property at Aldi and we will offer you an incredible commission of 1.5% (ownership) or 10% (lease)*.” Aldi is looking for locations in Harrogate, York and Scarborough
