If you're anything like us, you're seriously obsessed with Aldi. Yes, things like pickle popcorn, cheesecake dips, and the now-famous margarita wine have us hooked on this grocery chain, and it seems we're not alone.Aldi has apparently been seeing massive growth recently, so much so that it's planning to add dozens of additional stores to the U.S. this year.
The chain recently celebrated opening its 2,000th store in the United States and announced plans to open more than 70 new locations by the end of the year. In a release, Aldi saidthis expansion will include opening in its 37th state, Arizona, by opening four new stores in the greater Phoenix area. Additionally, Aldi will open a new regional headquarters and distribution center in Loxley, AL, which will serve surrounding areas, including Louisiana (the chain's 38th state).This rapid growth makes Aldi on track to become the third-largest grocery retailer by store count by the end of 2022.
In addition to expanding to new locations, the chain has also been expanding its curbside pickup and delivery options, as we previously reported. Sounds like there are going to continue to be a lot of ways to get your favorite Aldi snacks. And thank goodness for that.
