Aldi rival Kaufland has been given the green light for two more stores in Melbourne, bringing its Victorian store count to a whopping 14, though none have opened yet.

The German giant has already purchased three sites for new stores in Queensland, and a number of blocks of land in South Australia.

And now we know what the inside of the giant supermarkets, which will each be around 20,000 square metres, will look like.

To put that size into perspective, a typical Bunnings is around 15,000 square metres, while a regular Woolies or Coles is around 4,500 square metres.

The new stores aren’t expected to open for another two to three years.
