Supermarket giant Aldi is on the hunt for sites to put new stores in five towns throughout Suffolk and north Essex.

The German retailer has Felixstowe, Sudbury, Saxmundham, Colchester and north east Ipswich on its shopping list of potential locations for stores.

While the towns are listed as potential locations for stores on the Aldi website it does not appear that any new shops are imminent.
