Aldi is one of our all-time favorite budget grocers — and we’re not the only ones who think so. From delicious snacks to inexpensive home decor and even wine selection, it’s nearly impossible to walk out of an Aldi with a less than full shopping cart. But not everyone is lucky enough to have an Aldi close enough to where they live to make it a justifiable trip. Fortunately, the brand has big expansion plans in the works to make the grocer a bit more accessible to those who can’t get to one, according to Aldi’s most recent press release

Aldi is set to open an additional 800 stores across the United States by the end of 2028. This will be a combination of brand-new openings and store conversions. With our current economy, people are looking to save money however they can, so this expansion will hopefully bring more fresh food choices with a low price tag to places that may not have too many inexpensive options otherwise.

“For more than a decade, Aldi has added hundreds of stores per year across the country,” said Jason Hart, CEO of Aldi. “This success would not be possible without our dedicated team members and supplier partners that bring our customers value and convenience every day. With our growth comes exciting opportunities for our teams and suppliers to grow with us.”

The brand is investing a whopping $9 billion on the nationwide expansion by continuing to add stores to the Northeast and Midwest, but also growing its presence on the West Coast (particularly in Southern California and Phoenix) and entering new territory like Las Vegas.

Aldi has also recently acquired Southeastern Grocers and their Winn-Dixie and Harveys Supermarket labels, which will convert to the Aldi layout over the next few years. The company is continuing to ensure that as it expands, the environmental footprint doesn’t expand as well. Aldi is remodeling stores to include energy-efficient LED lighting, environmentally friendly refrigeration systems, and rooftop solar systems.

While there are a lot of changes in the works, customers can expect the same grocery experience they’re used to — the one that keeps them coming back.
