The supermarket is due to open off Leeming Road South between Mansfield and Mansfield Woodhouse later this year.

The proposals for the site were initially met with opposition from other supermarkets including Asda and Morrisons.

They argued it was “illogical” to have an Aldi midway between the two towns, but the planning permission was granted in 2015.

Supermarket growth

The discount supermarket is in the process of large-scale growth in the UK, targeting 1,200 stores across the country by 2025.

More than doubling its market share since 2011, the company now has 825 stores in the country.

This is set to rise to nearly 850 by September, with 130 new stores already open and in the pipeline for 2019 and 2020.
