Residents of four communities across the United States will have a new option when grocery shopping as Aldi will soon be opening stores in their towns. 

Shoppers in Franklin, N.C., will soon have a new option when grocery shopping as the discount grocer is opening its first location in the community located in the southwestern corner of the Tar Heel State. 

Officially opening on March 30, the first 100 customers will receive a gift bag filled with a sampling of ALDI Fan Favorites products and a gift card as part of the ALDI Golden Ticket gift card giveaway program. Shoppers can also enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a $500 ALDI gift card during the grand opening weekend from March 30 through April 2.

“Our stores are designed to make grocery shopping smarter, faster and easier, and we’ve been voted the price leader for six years running,” said Shaun O’Keefe, Jefferson regional vice president for ALDI. “We’re excited to open our first ALDI store in Franklin and introduce local customers to a new, more affordable way of shopping.”

Similarly, residents of Rock Hill, Mo.; Northampton, Mass.; and Clio, Mich.; will be able to walk the aisles of each community’s first Aldi location. The Rock Hill store will be located at 9530 Manchester Road, the Northampton store will be at 303 King Street-Building 2, and the Clio store will operate at 4460 W. Vienna Road. 

Additionally, Aldi is relocating its Washington, Mo., store to 3142 Phoenix Dr.

“We are excited to provide local shoppers a revamped and refreshed Aldi store designed to make grocery shopping smarter, faster and easier,” said Rob Jeffries, O’Fallon regional vice president for Aldi. “We are always looking out for the needs of our shoppers, and decided to move our Washington store to allow more room for added fresh, high-quality products at affordable prices, which our loyal shoppers know and love.”
