Changes will vary at store level, but include providing more space to shop and ensuring stores have more sustainable features, through energy efficient technology such as installing doors on fridges to reduce energy use and using natural refrigerants to reduce carbon emissions. Further improvements include updated signage, and redesigning store layouts. Most work will take place in June, July and August, with stores such as Leek, Newport and Brierly Hill set to undergo the biggest changes.

Jonathan Neale, MD of National Real Estate at Aldi UK, said: «Aldi attracted more new customers than any other grocery retailer in the last 12 months*, and we want to continue to offer the best possible in-store experience for our shoppers. We are committed to making sure that the shopping experience is on a par with the high-quality products and service we offer. Finding ways to reduce any environmental impact as we continue to grow our store estate across the country is also a vital part of these changes.»
