Discounter Aldi Is Offering the Public Around £20k To Find Them New Supermarket Sites!


The discounter has called upon the general public to help identify where Britain needs a new Aldi store, with suggestions to be submitted by 31st May 2024.

Aldi has announced that it is calling on the British public for support in identifying sites for new stores.

The discounter is looking to open some 35 new stores this year, with the aim of meeting its long-term goal of adding 500 stores to its portfolio to reach 1,500 stores across the UK. The ‘Next New Store’ initiative is part of a £550m investment into expanding its UK footprint in 2024.


The store chain has revealed that it is offering a finder’s fee to members of the public who successfully identify suitable sites for new stores. The fee is either 1.5% of a freehold price or 10% of the first year’s rent for leasehold sites. This could be a chunky £20,000 + to anyone who is successful in recommending the supermarket chain a location!


The discounter has called upon the general public to help identify where Britain needs a new Aldi store, with suggestions to be submitted by 31st May 2024.


The areas with the most suggestions will then be considered as potential prime locations as Aldi looks to build hundreds of new stores across Britain.


Members of the public can download a guide (the link opens as a PDF) that gives all the information on what the supermarket chain is looking for in a perfect site. Anyone who thinks they've found the perfect location site can email the supermarket’s Property team with further details or find more information on the Aldi website.
