RUNCORN is on Aldi’s wish list for a new store location and you could be paid for finding it.

As part of its expansion drive, the supermarket is looking for freehold town centre or edge-of-town sites of around 1.5 acres.

It wants sites that are able to fit a 20,000 square foot store with around 100 parking spaces, ideally near a main road with good visibility and access.

Aldi is offering a finder’s fee for people who successfully recommend a site – including members of the public – of either 1.5 per cent of the freehold price or 10 per cent of the first year’s rent for leasehold sites.

Aldi UK national property director George Brown said: “By opening more Aldi stores, we can provide affordable, high-quality food to even more people.

“But despite our growth in recent years, some people still don’t have access to a local store, which is why it is our mission to continue on with our ambitious growth plans and change that.

“Our finder’s fee is available to anyone who can find Aldi an appropriate property so we’d encourage people to share any suitable suggestions and get in touch.”

The list of areas Aldi is targeting for new stores includes Cheadle, Liverpool, Warrington and Wilmslow.
