Aldi Not Messin’ Around in Texas
Limited assortment grocer Aldi plans to open its first 27
stores in Texas this spring as part of the chain’s aggressive growth strategy
in markets across the country.
Eleven locations will open this month in the
Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex area, followed by nine other North Texas stores
in April and seven in May.
Aldi has invested more than $150 million in capital
expenditures in Texas, including $50 million to open a 500,000-square-foot
distribution center in Denton.
“There’s no better time than now for great prices, good jobs and
a lasting community investment,” said Scott Huska, Aldi Denton division vice
president, in a press release. “Whether shoppers need to stretch a budget or
simply choose to have more money to spend on other things, North Texans can
count on us for high quality select brands at prices no one else can touch.”
