As we told you first, ALDI is planning on taking over the location of the soon-to-close Giant Food store on Monroe Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia.
This past weekend, I heard from several people (Twitter, text, and email) that there was a rumor going around Del Ray that the ALDI Food Market opted out of the deal to come to Del Ray.
I can confirm to you that is 100% FALSE. ALDI is still coming to the Monroe Avenue location. I am trying to find out when ALDI will be taking over the space as Giant Food’s lease runs until January 2016.
