Aldi will add 4,000 permanent new jobs in the UK in 2021 as part of a promised £1.3bn investment between this year and next.

The value store chain said the investment comes as part of celebrations surrounding Aldi’s 30th year in the UK. The two-year investment programme includes 100 new stores with the target of reaching 1,200 stores in the UK by 2025, 100 store upgrades and new and expanded distribution centres. 

Aldi also revealed that its innovations over the period include a ‘click and collect’ service for customers which has been piloted and was launched last week.

The company added 3,000 new permanent jobs this year.

In a statement, the company said its annual sales increased by 8.3% to £12.3bn at year end of its most recent reporting period, to 31 December 2019.
