Aldi aims to open new supermarkets in 21 Greater Manchester locations as part of 100-store expansion

The discount giant has announced it is going to build another 100 supermarkets, including some in the North West.

Aldi says it will open 100 new stores across the UK over the next two years.

The popular discount chain already has 920 branches but says it will invest £1.3 billion by 2023 to open the equivalent of one new store a week.
