Retailer Aldi has ambitious plans to expand its Scottish presence as it moves ahead in 2016.
Over the next 12 months, the discount retailer is set to open a further eight stores to boost its total number of Scottish locations to 72.
In addition to its Camelon-based store, it is set to open a new store within the former Co-op building in Polmont this Spring.
In addition to new stores and jobs, Aldi continues to expand its range of Scottish-sourced products.
Since 2013, Aldi has increased the number of Scottish lines by 30 per cent and aim to increase that even further.
In the past year alone, Aldi has announced supplier deals with Campbells of Linlithgow to provide more than 140,000 Scottish salmon fillets; a £250,000 contract with Montrose-based Stirfresh to supply fresh ready-to-cook vegetables; and a six figure deal with Dean’s of Huntly to supply stores with shortbread and oat biscuit selections.
