Aldi is extending the trial of its Local store fascia, following the success of its first such shop that opened in Balham earlier this year.

The discounter will open a new Local store in Camden, north London soon and will begin converting existing stores in Archway, Eastcote, Kingston, Kilburn, Tooting and Romford to the new format. The Camden store will be 6,400 sq m and will stock 1,500 of the grocer’s 1,800 SKUs – much the same as the Balham, south London, store, which opened in March.
