Aldi to open 10 new stores in Southern California

Germany-based discount supermarket chain Aldi has announced its decision to further expand its reach to customers in Southern California, by opening 10 new stores in the area.

Most of the new stores will be opened in Los Angeles and Orange counties, and the openings swell the total the number of Aldi stores in the area to eighteen. The company’s first eight stores opened in March, mainly in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

When an Aldi store opened in Fontana last month many men and women lined up outside the store hours before the scheduled opening to be among the first customers.

Gordon Nesbit, vice president for ALDI’s Moreno Valley division, noted that shoppers love to get great-quality groceries at low prices.

Speaking on the topic, Nesbit said, “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. We are thrilled to be part of the SoCal community and are humbled by the very warm welcome that we've received so far.”

The new stores are located in Anaheim, Arcadia, La Verne, San Bernardino, Buena Park, Cerritos, Covina, Fountain Valley, Palmdale and Inglewood.

The grocery retailer has plans to open nearly four dozen stores in Southern California by the end of this year, eight of which are scheduled to be opened in May in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
