Aldi sees opportunity for 450 Texas stores

Essen, Germany – Global discount supermarket retailer Aldi Inc. is thinking big when it comes to Texas. According to the Dallas Morning News, Aldi sees potential for as many as 450 stores in the Lone Star State.

This would be part of a larger expansion program, announced in November, that would grow Aldi’s total U.S. store count by 650 units to about 2,000 by 2018. Southern California is another major growth target for the chain.

Wal-Mart, one of Aldi’s main U.S. competitors, is also targeting Texas for growth in its small-format Neighborhood Market stores. Aldi specializes in small stores of roughly 17,000-sq.-ft. The retailer currently operates 89 stores in Texas.
