Aldi Plans 800-Store Expansion Across the U.S. by 2028

Discount Retail Chain Aldi USA is embarking on an ambitious expansion plan, investing over $9 billion to add 800 new stores across the United States by the end of 2028. Their strategy involves a combination of new openings and store conversions, including locations in the Southeast that were acquired as part of the divestiture of parent company Southeastern Grocers. Aldi also plans to expand its presence in the Northeast, Midwest, and the West, entering new markets like Las Vegas. CEO Jason Hart emphasizes that this growth is in direct response to customer demand, with a commitment to meet the needs of their shoppers while positively impacting the communities they serve.

Aldi's Expansion in the Southeast

The acquisition of American grocery brands Winn-Dixie and Harveys Supermarket in August was a strategic move by Aldi as part of a larger divestiture of parent company Southeastern Grocers. This acquisition represents Aldi's commitment to expanding its presence in the Southeast. To execute this plan, Aldi aims to both open new stores and convert some of the former Winn-Dixie and Harveys locations into Aldi-branded stores. The locations that remain under their original branding will continue to operate as Winn-Dixie and Harveys stores, maintaining their distinct identities to best serve the local communities.

Aldi's Expansion in Northeast, Midwest, and West

In the Northeast and Midwest, Aldi has announced plans to add nearly 330 stores, increasing accessibility and convenience for customers in these regions. This strategic expansion is a response to the growing demand for Aldi's offerings in these areas. Furthermore, in the West, Aldi is set to broaden its presence by adding new stores in Southern California and Phoenix. Excitingly, Aldi will also venture into new markets, such as Las Vegas, illustrating the grocer's commitment to meeting the needs of customers across the country.

Aldi's Commitment to Sustainable Features in New and Remodeled Stores

Aldi is dedicated to environmental sustainability and is incorporating energy-efficient LED lighting in its new and remodeled stores. This initiative aims to reduce energy consumption while ensuring a well-lit shopping environment for customers. In addition, the company is focused on the implementation of environmentally friendly refrigeration systems, furthering their commitment to reducing their environmental footprint. Further solidifying their commitment, Aldi plans to install rooftop solar systems, harnessing renewable energy sources to power their operations and contribute to a greener future.
