German discounter Aldi is set to open 100 new stores, creating 4,000 jobs over the next 12 months. The chain said it's part of a £1.3billion two-year pledge that will also see its click & collect trial expanded across the UK.The move will bring 100 more outlets to Britain's streets, with a further 100 to be refurbished alongside a new revamp.
