First ALDI Food Market Opening in Alexandria December 17


As we told you first some time ago, on Thursday, Dec. 17, ALDI, one of America’s top three favorite grocery stores*, will offer shoppers a smarter alternative as it opens its first store in the City limits, located at 4602 Kenmore Avenue in the Seminary Hill neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia. The store is taking over the old Macgruder’s space in the Seminary Plaza Shopping Center.

With nearly 1,500 stores in 32 states, ALDI is known for high-quality grocery items at incredibly low prices. As part of the Grand Opening celebration, the first 100 shoppers in line will receive golden tickets, with each ticket containing an ALDI gift certificate of a different value.

*According to a survey of US consumers conducted in April 2015 by Market Force Information.

This is actually the SECOND Aldi in Alexandria. There is another on the Route 1 Corridor near the South County Center


But do we really need 3 of them in the City? 1 is enough. I wish they would have made the other 2 into Trader Joe’s.
