Aldi reaffirms its desire to invest in Coventry

ALDI the UK’s fifth largest supermarket, has reconfirmed its desire to invest in Coventry, having previously announced plans for a multi-million-pound investment in the city.

Plans that are yet to be approved by Coventry Council, for a new store at Alvis Retail Park in Coventry and an extension at Aldi’s Radford Road store, would see over 60 jobs brought to Coventry, all at market leading rates of pay.

The proposals at Alvis Retail Park will see a vacant unit transformed into an attractive, modern Aldi food store, creating up to 50 new jobs whilst providing local people with access to Aldi’s products.

At Radford Road, an extension would secure and provide new jobs as well as providing local people with a modern and accessible store that better serves the community.

The plans, which were first submitted to Coventry City Council in March 2020, are now in doubt following delays in receiving planning approval.

Speaking about the plans for investment in Coventry, an Aldi spokesperson said: “Aldi is committed to investing in Coventry having submitted plans for both our Alvis Retail Park and Radford Road stores.

“Our plans will bring over 60 new jobs to Coventry, as well as further choice for Coventry customers.

“We hope to hear from Coventry Council in the coming weeks so we can progress with our investment in Coventry.”
