ALDI Einkauf GmbH & Co. oHG Key Developments

Aldi Opens New Location in Beavercreek Retail Plaza

Aldi opened at 2451 Lakeview Drive off of North Fairfield Road. Situated at the south end of the development, the store spans about 18,500 square feet. The store is located near Hobby Lobby and Target. The new location means the closing of a nearby store. The new Beavercreek store will replace the Aldi located at 4886 Airway Road, which officially closed on Dec. 10. The store will feature a range of organic produce, USDA choice beef, the liveGfree gluten-free product line, and Simply Nature brand food products.

Aldi to Open its Latest Regional Store in Shrewsbury

Aldi will open its latest regional store in Shrewsbury on October 4, 2016. The 2,500-square-foot store is located at 7369 Watson Road in the Center at Kenrick Plaza, an $11 million development by Midwest Players Investment Fund II LLC, part of K2 Commerical Group. The company bought the property, previously known as "lower Kenrick," last year for an undisclosed sum. The Shrewsbury Board of Aldermen in May approved a special tax district for the development project, which will have 80,000 square feet of retail and office space. The 1% sales tax is expected to raise $2.6 million over 30 years, according to city documents. Aldi has ramped up its store openings, adding 10 locations in the past five years in the St. Louis area. It comes as the grocery-discount chain is investing more than $3 billion to add 650 stores nationwide by 2018 and as more consumers choose discount and limited-assortment stores.

Aldi to Establish New Distribution Center and Regional Headquarters in Dinwiddie County

Aldi announced plans to establish a new distribution center and regional headquarters in Dinwiddie County, Va., near Richmond. The limited assortment discounter would invest $57 million to establish a division headquarters and 500,000-square-foot distribution facility that would support 32 existing stores and 60 new store sites to be built in the state in the coming five years. Virginia successfully competed against North Carolina for the project, which will create 145 new jobs. The greater Richmond area is in the midst of upheaval as both Publix Super Markets and Wegmans Food Markets are establishing new sites in the area and Ahold's Martin's chain is departing.
