Aldi has added three North Wales towns to its list of locations it would like to build new stores in 2023.

The supermarket giant announced earlier this year plans to open 40 new stores across the UK in 2023, as well as revealing 30 ideal locations for new sites.

Aldi has more than 990 stores in the UK and is aiming to expand its property portfolio to around 1,200 with a planned investment of more than £400m in in-store development.

Aldi said: "Our sustained growth means we are continually expanding our property portfolio to help achieve our ever-growing goals for 2023.

"We have ambitious acquisition and development plans and prefer to purchase freehold, town centre or edge of centre sites suitable for property development in towns with a population of 15,000 or more.

"We are willing to explore all opportunities including developer led schemes and existing or new retail units."

Aldi has now updated its list of locations ideal for new stores to include three North Wales towns.
