The Federation of Independent Retailers (NFRN) has expressed dismay and concern at the news that National Lottery products will be on sale in all 900 Aldi stores from next month.

National President Stuart Reddish said:

“This move will dilute sales across the whole retail estate.  The more products available in the multiple outlets, the less likely National Lottery players will visit their local independent retailer to pick up their tickets or scratchcards.

“We will work closely with Camelot to understand the rationale for this move. As National President, my remit is to look after independent retailers.”
