Aldi U.S. crossed the 2,100 store mark last month.

The retailer opened three stores in Montgomery, Ala., Fort Myers, Fla., and Charlottesville, Va., in June that expanded the retailer’s new high mark. The stores follow its general 12,000 sq. ft. layout.

A Store Brands profile in April discussed the chain’s goal of reaching 2,500 stores by the end of next year, including another 100 this year. It also plans to enter its 38th state, when it opens a store in Louisiana. This year Aldi broke ground on a new regional headquarters and distribution center in Loxley, Ala., that is set to open next year. 

The chain also recently talked about its sustainability initiatives in a Q&A with Dan Gavin, VP of real estate for Aldi U.S.
