A discount supermarket chain is looking to build another store in Weston.
Aldi has confirmed it is looking to build a second store in the town.
The chain has one store at the Flowerdown Retail Park, in Aisecome Way.
Rumours have circulated the chain could move into Worle's former Homebase store in Queensway, which closed on December 20.
But when asked by the Mercury, Aldi refused to confirm or deny the proposal.
