Aldi targets supermarkets in Ipswich, Sudbury, Felixstowe and Saxmundham to meet shopper demand




A new Aldi store could be on its way to four more Suffolk towns, after the supermarket chain announced it is on the lookout for new locations.

Aldi confirmed it is looking for freehold town-centre or edge-of-centre sites suitable for development in Sudbury, Ipswich, Felixstowe and Saxmundham.

It says each site will aim to be around 1.5 acres, able to accommodate a 20,000 sq ft store with around 100 parking spaces, and ideally on a prominent main road and with good visibility and access.

Although the discount supermarket already has outlets in Sudbury and Ipswich, it has indicated that the demand is available locally to be able to facilitate a second location.

Ciaran Aldridge, national property director at Aldi UK, said: “We have been investing in Britain for more than 30 years now.

“We know that there are still areas that either do not have an Aldi at all, or that need another store to meet customer demand.

“Shoppers are increasingly looking to get unbeatable prices on their weekly shop without compromising on quality.

“That’s why, more so than ever, we’re keen to explore all opportunities to open new stores across the country.”
