Aldi has reached the milestone of 400 stores in Spain, with the opening of a new supermarket in Valencia.
The new outlet is Aldi's sixth opening so far this year and the first store it has opened in Valencia in 2023, taking its total number of outlets in the region to 65.
Over the past three years, the German discounter has opened nearly 100 outlets, doubling down on its growth agenda in the country.
During 2022, Aldi Spain, which is part of the Aldi Nord group, increased its retail surface area by 11%.
The company will continue to drive this expansion with plans to open close to 50 new shops over the course of this year.
