Executive Summary

Having benefited from the economic downturn Aldi is keen to retain its burgeoning customer base during the recovery. There will be less pressure on customers to shop at Aldi, but the retailer is trying to retain them by increasing its fresh offer which will make it a viable alternative for a weekly shop. It must however ensure it adequately promotes its brand and products to customers.

Key Findings

Benchmark your performance in food & grocery with detailed key performance indicators across sales and space data for Aldi

Plan your expansion strategy by understanding how and where Aldi has increased its store portfolio, and the impact this has had on densities

As a planner, assess the viability of an Aldi store by examining its sales densities, and understanding its expansion plans


We expect further healthy growth from the retailer as space growth, driven by store openings, continues and stores are more productive with positive l-f-l trends. This growth is set to slow, however, as l-f-l gains will be harder to come by in its more mature stores, however it will still grow faster than the overall food & grocery market.

Having opened its first smaller format store in Kilburn, London in April 2013, Aldi can use the convenience channel to become more competitive and provide a more relevant offer to customers. While the market is very competitive and rents are high on these town centre sites, Aldi can become a successful multi-format retailer, gaining more visitors.

Aldi opened its 500th store in October 2013 as it continues to expand its store portfolio to meet burgeoning demand for its discount offer. The landmark opening highlights that Aldi already has a significant presence in the UK, but it must expand further as it remains behind discount rival Lidl.
