Aldi has opened seven stores in the Richmond region in the past year, and has plans for at least two more. The grocery chain is known for its low-priced store brands and relatively small store footprint. Its grocery stores are about 17,000 square feet — compared with the 45,000 square feet of the typical grocery store and the more than 100,000 square feet of mega-sized supermarkets.
Aldi has 32 stores in Virginia, and plans to open up to 60 more locations across the state in the next five years. . . . more
