Aldi is set to refurbish over 30 UK stores this summer, marking an investment of £90m throughout 2024.

Over 100 stores across the UK will get an upgrade to various levels in the upcoming year, from Crewe to Cardiff and Didcot to Dumfries.

Improvements include creating more space and ensuring stores have more sustainable features, through energy-efficient technology such as installing doors on fridges to cut energy usage and using natural refrigerants to reduce carbon impact.

The work is due to take place between June and August, with some stores, such as Leek Newport and Brierly Hill, set to undergo the most significant changes.

Aldi UK managing director national real estate Jonathan Neale said: “Aldi attracted more new customers than any other grocery retailer in the last 12 months, and we want to continue to offer the best possible in-store experience for our shoppers.

“We’re committed to making sure that the shopping experience is on a par with the high-quality products and service we offer. Finding ways to reduce any environmental impact as we continue to grow our store estate across the country is also a vital part of these changes.”
