ALDI Set to Open First Montgomery Store on August 1st

International grocery chain Aldi is making preparations to open its first store in Montgomery on August 1.  The store is being built on Eastern Boulevard, next to Best Buy and Petco.

The Montgomery store is part of a $3.4 billion investment to expand to 2,500 stores nationwide by the end of 2022. Aldi opened a store in Prattville last year.

To celebrate the Montgomery store opening, Aldi plans to host a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, August 1, at 8:45 a.m., followed by a Golden Ticket giveaway, offering gift cards to the first 100 customers. Shoppers can also sample Aldi-brand foods and enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a year’s supply of produce.

“We strive to make grocery shopping an enjoyable experience. We combine great food with affordable prices, and we are excited to open our first store in Montgomery, to show a new community of shoppers what we do best,” said Shaun O’Keefe, Jefferson division vice president for Aldi in a statement. “We pride ourselves on saving people time and money, and we can’t wait to provide Montgomery residents with a grocery store that meets their needs.”

Aldi is adding 25,000 new jobs in stores, warehouses and offices across the country by the end of 2022. ALDI was named to the Forbes list of “America’s Best Large Employers” five years in a row and was recognized as a 2019 and 2018 Indeed Best Places to Work: Compensation and Benefits.
