The new pay increases will see the hourly rate of Store Assistants nationally rise from £12 to £12.40, and from £13.55 to £13.65 for those within the M25.

This marks the second pay increase for Aldi store colleagues this year and takes the supermarket’s investment in pay this year to £79m.

The supermarket also remains the only one to provide paid breaks, which is worth more than £900 a year for the average store colleague.
