A NEW store in Sedgley and upgrades to a Brierley Hill supermarket are promised by Aldi bosses as part of a £13,777,200 investment across the West Midlands next year.

New and upgraded stores are planned across the region including the development of a brand new store coming to Sedgley and upgrades to the supermarket giant’s current store in Dudley Road, Brierley Hill.

Aldi is planning to invest a total of £1.4bn in expanding its footprint across the UK throughout the rest of this year and in 2024 in order to meet its growing customer base.

New stores set to open in 2024 are expected to create an estimated 1,500 new jobs across the country, with job opportunities in all of the chain’s current stores, regional distribution centres and UK offices.

Richard Thornton, communications director for Aldi UK, said: “We’re continuing to welcome more and more new customers through our doors – with people coming for our low prices but sticking around for our award-winning quality.

“However, there are still areas of the country that don’t have an Aldi, or that need more or larger stores to meet demand.

“That is what our 2024 expansion plans aim to do. We now have more than 1,000 stores across the UK but there are plenty more Aldi stores still to come, in 2024 and beyond.”
