Aldi plans to invest more than £400 million in store development over the coming year as it targets new and refurbished stores across the UK.
Upton is one of the towns Aldi is treating as a priority for a new store.
Slightly further afield, Aldi is also looking to build new stores in Liverpool and Formby as part of a 40 store expansion programme.
Aldi currently has more than 990 stores and is committed to continuing towards its current target of 1,200 stores across the UK.
Giles Hurley, Chief Executive Officer at Aldi UK, said, “Demand for Aldi has never been higher but there are still some towns and areas that either don’t have access to an Aldi or have capacity for additional stores.
“To meet that demand, we need to open more stores and it’s our mission to keep driving our ambitious expansion plan to achieve that.”
