Aldi, which opened its 1,000th UK store in Woking last month, will be opening 12 new stores across the UK between now and the end of the year.
Taunton and Oldham will be opening their doors to new Aldi stores this month, following Slough, Torquay and Cannock who each opened new stores last week.
November will see towns such as Farnborough and West Bridgford welcome new Aldi stores, while other regions across the UK are set to open new stores before the end of the year.
The openings are in line with Aldi’s long-term target of opening 1,500 stores in the UK, including a £1.4billion investment over the next two years to expand its UK footprint.
Each new store opening will create an average of 40 new jobs, boosting employment opportunities in local areas.

Aldi is the only supermarket that pays its staff for breaks – which can be worth up to £972 a year – in addition to a Store Assitant’s starting pay of £11.40 per hour (£12.85 for those based in London).
George Brown, Real Estate Director at Aldi UK, said: “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.
“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.”
