Aldi announces price cuts and 12 new stores

Aldi has announced its latest round of price cuts and the location of 12 new stores it plans to open before the end of the year.

Around 50 products at the supermarket, including cheese, butter, poultry and cleaning items, will drop by an average of seven percent.

Last month, Aldi lowered the price on a third of its fruit and vegetable range. The supermarket said it has made around 200 price cuts over the past few months to help customers with the cost-of-living crisis.

“We will always stand by our promise to keep our prices as low as possible for customers and this latest round of price cuts proves just that,” said Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi UK. “That promise applies to everything from household essentials to high-quality groceries, all of which we want to make accessible to everyone, and it’s why we continue to see shoppers switch to Aldi.”

The supermarket has also announced it will open 12 new stores by the end of the year as part of its long-term plan to have 1,500 stores in the UK.

Aldi opened stores in Slough, Torquay and Cannock last week and said it will open two more in Taunton and Oldham. Stores in Farnborough and West Bridgford will be opened in November.

The company said new store opening will create around 40 new jobs on average, boosting employment opportunities within local areas.

“We’re welcoming more and more customers through our doors each week, which is why we’re investing in new stores up and down the country to bring our great value groceries to even more people and meet the growing demand for Aldi,” said George Brown, real estate director at Aldi UK. “Shoppers know they’ll always get more for their money when they shop with us, and we’re confident Aldi’s success will continue to grow.”
