When is Aldi coming to Neath?
Aldi has been declared the UK's lowest priced supermarket in a new comparison survey.
According to independent analysis by The Grocer, the German chain surpassed its main rivals including Tesco, Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury's to scoop the title in the trade magazine's latest weekly rankings.
It comes after the budget chain was named as as Grocer of the Year by the same title earlier in 2018, knocking Tesco off the top spot.
Aldi has long reigned popular with bargain-hunting shoppers and the latest news confirms that they're saving the most on their everyday essentials, up to a whopping £9.79 on their baskets.
