ALDI Arrives in Los Angeles and Orange Counties, Brings Quality and Freshness for Less
One of America’s Favorite Grocers* to Open 10 New Stores on Thursday, April 21
Batavia, Ill. – April 7, 2016 – Residents in Los Angeles and Orange Counties will soon be able to experience a whole new way to grocery shop at ALDI, one of America’s favorite grocers. On Thursday, April 21, ALDI will open 10 new Southern California locations, six of which are in Los Angeles County, three in Orange County and one new store in San Bernardino County. The easy-to-shop food market takes a simple approach to grocery shopping that translates into big savings for ALDI shoppers. In fact, shoppers have found that switching from national brands to ALDI exclusive brands can save them up to 50 percent** on their grocery bill.
“California customers who are new to ALDI might not recognize our brands, but they definitely will recognize the great taste and quality, and will love our everyday low prices,” said Gordon Nesbit, Moreno Valley division vice president for ALDI. “It’s clear shoppers throughout the country, including those in the Southland, appreciate saving money on the groceries they buy the most, including everything from fresh meat, fruits, vegetables, dairy and bakery items to organic and gluten-free foods. And it’s our approach to making great quality groceries affordable that has helped ALDI become one of the fastest growing retailers in the US. We look forward to our continued expansion across Southern California.”
The April grand openings are the next step in the grocery retailer’s plan to open approximately 45 stores in Southern California by the end of 2016, eight of which opened last month. The Southern California store openings play a significant role in the company’s strategic plan to expand to nearly 2,000 ALDI stores from coast-to-coast by the end of 2018.
Now Accepting Credit Cards at Stores Nationwide
ALDI recently announced plans to accept credit cards – including Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express – at all of its stores nationwide. The move to accept credit cards is yet another way ALDI is making grocery shopping as simple and enjoyable as possible for its more than 30 million customers each month.
ALDI Grand Opening Celebrations
Stores celebrating their grand opening on April 21 will host an official ribbon-cutting ceremony at
8:45 a.m. The first 100 shoppers to arrive at each store will receive a golden ticket redeemable for an ALDI gift certificate of various amounts, and all shoppers will be invited to enter an on-site sweepstakes for a chance to win Produce for a Year. Additionally, shoppers on April 21, 22, 23 and 24 will receive a complimentary ALDI reusable eco-bag, while supplies last.
“Great-quality groceries and everyday low prices make for an unmatched combination that shoppers love, and that couldn’t be more true than it is right here in California,” said Gordon Nesbit, Moreno Valley division vice president for ALDI. “We are thrilled to be part of the SoCal community and are humbled by the very warm welcome that we’ve received so far. We encourage everyone to stop by and check us out… and start getting fresh groceries for less. ”
