Aldi has revealed that it plans to create 35,000 new jobs in Britain as it almost doubles the total number of stores over the next eight years.
The popular discount supermarket will open 54 stores by the end of this year, 60 to 65 next year and also aims to have 1,000 stores by 2022.
The details of Aldi’s big job boost were announced during a visit by David Cameron to the firm’s UK headquarters in Warwickshire on Monday.
Aldi confirmed plans, first announced in September, to invest £600m as it expanded operations in Britain.
Although Aldi’s intention to create 35,000 jobs will aid those seeking work, retail analyst Nick Bubb has cast some doubt over the total number of jobs that would be made.
