The new store, which is part of Aldi's investment in local communities across the UK, has created a raft of new job opportunities. The retailer aims to have 1,200 stores by 2025.

The new Aldi store is also calling on local charities and food banks in West Bromwich, to register with Neighbourly, a community engagement platform that links businesses to charitable organisations in their community to receive regular donations of surplus food from the supermarket.
