Aldi Is Opening at Least 100 More New Stores This Year—Here’s Where

Is your area slated for an Aldi expansion?

Aldi wins over Americans’ hearts and wallets wherever it sets up shop. Now, even more of the country is going to be able to experience some of that Aldi magic because a slew of brand-new stores are in the works.

To be specific, there will be more than 100 new Aldi stores by the end of the year. This is in addition to the 70 new stores promised and delivered for 2020. Fingers crossed that Aldi will be in your neighborhood soon!

Here’s a Closer Look at Aldi’s Expansion

This is a natural progression for a grocery chain that recently opened its 2,000th store in the US. Plus, Aldi has been doing some remodeling, too. Aldi’s latest expansion plans include more stores in Arizona, California and Florida, as well as a new distribution center in Loxley, Alabama. There will be stores opening in Louisiana, too, which will be the 38th state with an Aldi.

Even a global pandemic couldn’t keep Aldi down, it seems. In fact, the chain even started offering new services to make social distancing easier for shoppers, like expanded grocery delivery and pickup via Instacart. Plus, roughly 500 Aldi stores will add curbside pickup service over the summer, bringing the total number of curbside locations to over 1,200.

Why Do Shoppers Love Aldi?

For those unfamiliar, Aldi is home to budget-friendly grocery staples, plus fun things like pineapple mimosas and monthly Aldi Finds to keep shoppers coming back. Aldi is also known for its beloved store brands like SimplyNature and Fit & Active. Here are a few perks Aldi offers that might surprise you, too.

No surprise, Aldi recently took first place in a study that determined the best value grocery store in the US. We couldn’t agree more!
