Budget supermarket chain Aldi wants to open a new store in Keswick, it has revealed.
The UK’s fifth largest supermarket said it was targeting three areas in Cumbria as it continues to grow.
The chain has been opening one store a week on average, it said, to meet growing demand.
As well as Keswick, it wants to open supermarkets in Windermere and Staveley.
It added that it would consider town centre or edge-of-town sites suitable for development.
The chain said it had no specific sites in mind, but would ideally like land around 1.5 acres, able to accommodate a 20,000 sq ft store with around 100 parking spaces, on a prominent main road and with good visibility and access.
Ciaran Aldridge, national property director at Aldi UK, said: “We have been investing in Britain for more than 30 years now, but we know that there are still areas that either do not have an Aldi at all, or that need another store to meet customer demand.
“We’re keen to explore all opportunities to open new stores across the country.”
