A supermarket giant has announced it is on the lookout for new store locations in Hertfordshire.

Aldi said it wants to reopen 11 new stores in different towns in the county, as it targets having 1,200 open by 2025.

The supermarket said a few areas it is targeting include Harpenden and Hitchin and said a St Albans store is due to open in September.

It says each site should be around 1.5 acres and be able to accommodate a 20,000 sq ft store with around 100 parking spaces.

National property director at Aldi UK Ciaran Aldridge said: "Aldi is growing rapidly and we are welcoming around a million new customers into our stores every year.

"But there are also hundreds of towns across the UK where there is not an Aldi, meaning there are hundreds of thousands of people who can't easily access the high quality, affordable food our customers love.

"We are willing to explore all opportunities, including developer-led schemes or existing retail units."

Here is a full list of areas Aldi is targeting in the county: 






•London Colney

•Potters Bar

•St Albans
