BOSSES at budget supermarket chain Aldi have said they would like to open new branches in Monmouth, Chepstow, Newport and Caldicot.

The national chain has released the full 'wish list' of where the retailer would like to open across the UK.

It comes after rival supermarket Lidl published details of where they hope to open new stores in the coming years.

A statement on Aldi's website reads: "Our sustained growth means we are continually expanding our property portfolio to help achieve our ever-growing goals for 2022.

"We have ambitious acquisition and development plans beyond that and are looking to acquire sites that meet the following property criteria for our standard store format."

What types of site are they looking for?

The details on the Aldi website add: "We prefer to purchase freehold, town centre or edge of centre sites suitable for property development in towns with a population of 15,000 or more.

"We are willing to explore all opportunities including developer led schemes and existing or new retail units.

"Our yield profile is increasingly adding value to developments."

It's important to point out that while this list of locations is not definite - it gives a strong indication as to where the supermarket company want to expand to.
