Aldi is looking to open new stores across the country and is giving its customers the chance to decide where.

The UK's fourth-largest supermarket is asking people in Oxfordshire and across the nation to nominate their area as a location for a new store.

The areas which receive the most suggestions will be considered as part of Aldi's plan to build hundreds of new branches.

The retailer currently has more than 1,000 stores – including around nine in Oxfordshire - and is committed to continuing towards its long-term target of having more than 1,500 stores across the UK.

Jonathan Neale, managing director of national real estate at Aldi, said: "We want to make high-quality food accessible to all, but there are still some areas that either don't have an Aldi or have potential for more stores.

"We've identified some key places where there is demand for more stores already, but now we are calling on the public to share their views.

"This will be used to help inform our property search over the coming years."

Those wanting to put their town forward to be considered should contact the supermarket by emailing, stating their postcode and why they believe their area needs a new Aldi store.

The deadline is May 31, with the supermarket planning to update customers on the results later this year.
