Derbyshire’s budget supermarket shoppers will have another store to choose from soon. According to the Derby Telegraph, German retail giant Aldi is planning to open a store at a new retail park situated just twenty minutes’ drive from Derby city centre.

The retail park will be located just off Nottingham Road in Somercotes, where the Coats Viyella clothing factory once stood. Other businesses cited by the paper as potential tenants at the new shopping destination include The Range, Greggs and a Marston’s pub.

The 1,742 square metre Aldi supermarket is set to open in June and will replace the firm's dated Nottingham Road store.

Derby’s College Retail Park Store Opened by an Olympian

Aldi has been rapidly increasing the number of stores that it has in the county and now has five in Derby itself. The most recent addition to its Derby portfolio opened in late February. The 1,254 square metre shop is the flagship business in the city's College Retail Park, which has been constructed on the city’s derelict Mackworth College site.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was performed by Hollie Pearne-Webb, who was part of Team GB’s gold medal-winning hockey team at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Customers keen to be the first to look around the store queued for two hours to get in, with the first thirty people through the doors receiving complimentary bags of fruit and vegetables. 

Aldi also has supermarkets in the Derby suburbs of Alvaston and Chaddesden, as well as in the Meteor Retail Park and Uttoxeter New Road.

The Future for Aldi in Derbyshire – More Stores on the Way ?

Aldi fans in the area may have even more to celebrate soon, as the retailer has been eyeing up more potential store sites in the county. The company has already submitted plans for an additional store to be constructed on a vacant site opposite Derby’s Friar Gate Goods Yard. The proposal is for a 1,800 square metre store and a car park with space for 119 vehicles. If the plans are accepted, it could result in the creation of forty new jobs. 

The Derby Telegraph also recently revealed that the budget supermarket chain is considering opening additional shops within the city and in nearby places such as Swadlincote and Woodville.
