Aldi is on the hunt for a new store location in Penwortham.Advertisement
The UK’s fifth-largest supermarket offers a finder’s fee for people who recommend a site; either 1.5 per cent of a freehold price or 10 per cent of the first year’s rent for leasehold sites.
Aldi, which already has more than 960 stores across the UK, is looking for a freehold town-centre or edge-of-town site of around 1.5 acres.
The site should be able to accommodate a 20,000 sq ft store with around 100 parking spaces. Ideally the location will be near a main road with good visibility and access.

George Brown, National Property Director at Aldi UK, said: “By opening more Aldi stores, we can provide affordable, high-quality food to even more people.
“But despite our growth in recent years, some people still don’t have access to a local store, which is why it is our mission to continue on with our ambitious plans and change that.
“Our finder’s fee is available to anyone who can find Aldi an appropriate site so we’d encourage people to share any suitable suggestions and get in touch.”
