Aldi names Dorset and South Somerset towns on target list for new stores

BUDGET supermarket chain Aldi is eyeing a string of sites in Dorset and South Somerset.

“We have ambitious acquisition and development plans and prefer to purchase freehold, town centre or edge of centre sites suitable for property development in towns with a population of 15,000 or more.”

The full list of sites included on the Aldi list is: Blandford, Bridport, Christchurch, Dorchester, Ferndown, Poole, Ringwood, Salisbury, Shaftesbury, Sherborne, Sturminster Newton, Swanage, Wareham, Wimborne, Wincanton, Yeovil.

    Please bring Aldi to Wincanton.
    There are only two superstores, Lidl and Morrisons,which supports much of the neighbouring villages too and not just Wincanton.
    The town and surrounding villages are expanding very rapidly with housing popping up everywhere.
    To have more choice of food stores would be brilliant.
    But Aldi is my favourate store through choice.
