Discount Retail Chain ALDI Poland (privately owned) is accelerating the pace of development and is planning further openings throughout Poland. By the end of 2021, the chain's stores will be available in most provinces in Poland. ALDI is planning to open around 45 stores this year and invest in green energy. The chain plans to employ about 600 people. The chain currently has 168 stores all over Poland. In 2021, ALDI will accelerate the pace of development compared to last year and will open about 45 new stores with a total area comparable to almost 9 football fields, i.e. 63,000 sq m. The chain places great emphasis on the Pomeranian province, where it has been very popular with customers since last year's openings. ALDI also focuses on further development in the Mazowieckie and Wielkopolskie province, stores will also appear in Lubelskie, Warmińsko-Mazurskie and Podlaskie. Thanks to expansion plans, the brand will be available to customers in almost every province by the end of 2021. The chain is also planning numerous modernizations and extensions of the existing facilities in order to adapt to standards and improve the comfort of shopping. Due to the development, the demand for employees will increase.
So far, the brand has been present mainly in the cities of southern, central and western Poland, where it has been well received by customers. Since the beginning of 2020, the network has been expanding practically throughout Poland. By the end of December, 24 new ALDI stores had opened. All prepared in accordance with the brand's new visual concept. "We will successively increase the number of opened stores to around 50 per year. The past decade has created an excellent foundation for this step, therefore we are accelerating the pace of development. Later this year, we want to be available to customers in every province to increase brand recognition. We know that location is the main factor in choosing a store for everyday shopping," sums up Tomasz Gawlik, director of the Real Estate and Expansion Area of the ALDI chain in Poland.
ALDI announces that it will use more green energy by the end of 2021. The number of stores equipped with photovoltaic installations will increase. Already now, thanks to the implemented solutions, 52,400MWh of electricity is generated on the roofs of the chain stores in the entire ALDI Nord. By the end of 2021, the entire ALDI Nord will also reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 40% compared to 2015.
