Aldi is set to upgrade more than 100 of its stores across the UK with the first round of revamps happening over the summer.


The discount supermarket revealed over 30 stores will undergo refurbishments this summer, as it aims to invest more than £90m on store improvements throughout the year.

Each store will have different levels of change but all include more space to shop and ensuring stores have more sustainable features through energy-efficient tech such as installing doors on fridges to reduce energy use and using natural refrigerants to reduce carbon emissions.

Aldi added that further improvements such as updated signage and redesigning store layouts will also occur.

The store upgrades will mostly take place across June, July and August, with stores in Leek, Newport and Brierly Hill undergoing “the biggest changes”.

Aldi UK managing director of national real estate Jonathan Neale said: “Aldi attracted more new customers than any other grocery retailer in the last 12 months and we want to continue to offer the best possible in-store experience for our shoppers.

“We’re committed to making sure that the shopping experience is on a par with the high-quality products and service we offer. Finding ways to reduce any environmental impact as we continue to grow our store estate across the country is also a vital part of these changes.”
