Aldi, Britain’s fifth biggest supermarket business, is increasing the size of its London store portfolio by opening three new branches.

The chain currently has 51 shops in the capital and it said three more will open before the end of the year. Its first site in London opened in 1995 in Feltham.

A new site will open in Harringay (Green Lanes) on October 28, and branches in Orpington and Cheam will respectively start welcoming customers on December 2 and December 9.

Each shop will create around 30 jobs on average.

Ben Shotter, regional managing director at Aldi UK, said: “There are still too many people living in the capital for whom shopping at Aldi isn’t a convenient option. We’re committed to changing that.”

The update comes after the retailer last month said it intends to create another 2000 jobs in the UK next year as it expands.

Investments will see it add 100 more UK shops to the estate, increase its warehousing space, and trial a new checkout free store in Greenwich.
