ALDI has announced that it is on the look out for new store locations in Cheshire, including Cheshire Oaks and Frodsham.

The UK’s fifth largest supermarket has been on an expansion drive in recent years as it targets having 1,200 stores open by 2025.

Among the locations it hopes to open in are Frodsham, Tarporley, and Cheshire Oaks.

It also wants to build additional stores in Chester.

Aldi, which currently has more than 880 stores across the UK, has identified 23 new locations where it is looking for freehold town-centre or edge-of-centre sites suitable for development.
