National supermarket chain, ALDI, is said to be looking for new locations for stores on the Isle of Wight.
The UK’s fifth biggest supermarket has opened around 4 new stores per month on average around the UK to meet the increasing demand by consumers for its low prices.
On the Island, the chain currently has stores in both Cowes and Lake, but is said to be on the lookout for sites that could accommodate a new store in areas including Ryde and Shanklin to complement its 900 other stores across the country.
A store is already said to be planned for the new St George’s Way retail park in Newport, as previously reported.
It’s expected that any further opening of stores on the Island would mean the creation of at least 30 new jobs for residents.
