and live on Freeview channel 276
The planned expansion comes after Aldi announced it had become the fourth largest supermarket in the nation.
The German retailer claims building the new outlets would bring more affordable food to neighbourhoods amid the cost of living crisis.
The new stores would add to the 960 already situated in Britain.
Giles Hurley, Chief Executive Officer for Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “The crisis is worsening, and it’s being felt by millions of households across the UK.
“It’s in times like these when our customers rely on us the most, which is why we’re focusing on continuing to deliver our longstanding price promise by offering the lowest possible prices in Britain, every single day.
“Independent research shows our discount is as compelling as ever and that’s why more and more people are switching to Aldi.
“We will do whatever it takes to maintain our discount to the traditional full-price supermarkets and keep grocery prices as low as possible for our millions of customers.”
