German discount store Aldi wants to open more than 100 new stores in Great Britain by the end of 2021. Brexit and the coronavirus pandemic should not be an obstacle and should not stop the retail chain’s expansion.
Aldi wants to invest 1.3 billion pounds (equivalent to 1.43 billion euros) in the next few months. This is expected to create 4,000 new job opportunities. The department store chain has also had great success on the island and has scored points with a similar product strategy to that in Germany.
However, there are also differences from German stores. In Great Britain, Aldi focuses primarily on British products and offers Aldi Local, a smaller version of its city center stores.
