Aldi has announced more than £18 million investment into new stores across Buckinghamshire.

The German supermarket chain revealed plans to pump around £18,761,500 into new stores in the county.

Aldi is set to open new stores in High Wycombe, Amersham and Olney if plans are approved.

Aldi’s communications director Richard Thornton 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.” 

The investment in Buckinghamshire is part of the company’s massive £1.4 billion boost to expand up and down the country in the coming months after attracting “more customers than any other supermarket in the last 12 months,” Aldi said.

The discount supermarket prides itself on paying its staff a minimum hourly rate of £11.40 and £12.85 per hour within the M25 and offering staff paid breaks unlike many competitors.
