Aldi is creeping up behind the big supermarkets by sharing plans to open 130 new stores as part of a £600 million UK expansion.
The discount supermarket plans to hire 8,000 more staff, increasing its UK workforce to 35,000 by 2022.
It is gradually earning more of the UK market share and in April, overtook Waitrose as the UK’s sixth-biggest supermarket. Aldi now has 5.3% of the market share.
With one year to go until the Rio 2016 Olympic Games start, Aldi has already launched its campaign as an official GB partner and because of this, the supermarket has recruited six Team GB athletes. This includes Nicola Adams who is the world’s first female boxing Olympic champion.
