Supermarket chain considers potential site on Tenby outskirts

THE UK’s fifth largest supermarket may have found a potential site for a new store located in Tenby, according to locals. 

Last year, Aldi announced that it was searching for a site for a new store in the Tenby area, confirming they were looking for freehold ‘town centre’ or ‘edge of centre’ sites which were appropriate for development. 

According to local rumours, the area at Trefloyne Lane in Penally has been designated as a viable site because it is close to Kiln Park Holiday Park, a premier Haven Holidays location.

Tenby’s nearest Aldi stores are currently located in Haverfordwest and Pembroke Dock. In an effort to grow their company, Aldi has been opening one new store per week on average.

They said that their new site would need to be approximately 1.5 acres and be able to accommodate a 20,000sq ft store. It should also have around 100 parking spaces and would ideally be located on a main road, allowing good visibility and access. 

Aldi announced last year that they were aiming to open several new stores across Wales, including:

  • Aberdare
  • Ammanford
  • Barry
  • Bridgend
  • Caernarfon
  • Cardiff
  • Chepstow
  • Colwyn Bay
  • Cowbridge
  • Dolgellau
  • Flint
  • Holywell
  • Lampeter
  • Llanelli
  • Llantrisant
  • Maesteg
  • Monmouth
  • Mumbles
  • Neath
  • Newport
  • Penarth
  • Pontardawe
  • Pontypool
  • Pontypridd
  • Porthcawl
  • Pwllheli
  • Swansea
  • Tenby
  • Tonypandy
  • Treharris

Ciaran Aldridge, National Property Director at Aldi UK, said: “We have been investing in Britain for more than 30 years now, but we know that there are still areas that either do not have an Aldi at all, or that need another store to meet customer demand.

“Shoppers are increasingly looking to get unbeatable prices on their weekly shop without compromising on quality.

“That’s why, more so than ever, we’re keen to explore all opportunities to open new stores across the country.”
