An Aldi store in Renfrewshire is set to be upgraded next year.

The Erskine branch, in Bridgewater Shopping Centre, will benefit from new investment from the supermarket chain.

Aldi plans to invest a total of £1.4billion in expanding its footprint across the UK, with new stores set to open in 2024.

This is set to create an estimated 1,500 new jobs across the country, with further job opportunities in all of Aldi's current stores, Regional Distribution Centres and UK offices.

Richard Thornton, communications director at Aldi UK, said: "We're continuing to welcome more and more new customers through our doors – with people coming for our low prices but sticking around for our award-winning quality. 

"However, there are still areas of the country that don’t have an Aldi, or that need more or larger stores to meet demand. That is what our 2024 expansion plans aim to do. 

"We now have more than 1,000 stores across the UK but there are plenty more Aldi stores still to come, in 2024 and beyond."
