Aldi plans to open a new supermarket each week

3559161489?profile=RESIZE_710xAldi plans to open a new store in the UK every week on average for the next two years, its boss has told the BBC.

Giles Hurley said the discount retailer would invest £1bn to achieve its aim.

"The reality is that almost 50% of the population of the UK doesn't currently shop with us and they tell us the main reason for that is that they don't have a store near us," he said.

Aldi's pledge came as it reported a sales rise for last year, but saw profits fall sharply.
