ALDI has recently opened its 2,000th store and announced plans to open more than 70 new stores by the end of this year. The value-leading grocery chain is surging growth and expansion as a common theme for 2020.
In the past few years, ALDI has invested more than $5 billion in initiatives to grow their company and update existing stores. It’s no surprise that the grocery chain will continue their efforts to increase their physical footprint.
ALDI’s coast-to-coast expansions will include openings of four stores in Arizona, entering its 37th state. And, in 2021 they will break ground on a new distribution center in Alabama.
“Each new store is an opportunity to serve another community, which is an honor and responsibility we do not take lightly. As we continue to expand, we promise to do everything in our power to offer the lowest prices, every day, without exception. In fact, as food costs are rising across the country, we’re lowering prices on hundreds of items to meet our customers’ increased need for savings,” said Jason Hart, ALDI Chief Executive Officer.
