ALDI is known for its unique warehouse-style shelving and competitive prices and says it will offer a simplified shopping experience to area residents. The store will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“Our stores are designed to make grocery shopping smarter, faster and easier, and we’ve been voted the price leader for six years running,” said Shaun O’Keefe, Jefferson regional vice president for ALDI. “We’re excited to open our first ALDI store in Landrum and introduce local customers to a new, more affordable way of shopping.”

The first 100 customers will receive a gift bag filled with a sampling of ALDI Fan Favorites products and a gift card as part of the ALDI Golden Ticket gift card giveaway program.

Shoppers can also enter sweepstakes for a chance to win a $500 ALDI gift card during the Grand Opening weekend from August 10 through August 13.

More than 1,000 new ALDI stores have opened throughout America over the past decade. ALDI said in a press release that it is so confident in its products that every item is backed by its ‘Twice as Nice Guarantee.’ If a customer is not 100% satisfied with the quality of a product for any reason, ALDI will replace the product and refund it.

ALDI adds that one way it provides lower prices for its products is that it doesn’t need to hire employees to corral loose carts. Shoppers deposit a quarter to unlock a shopping cart and customers get their quarter back when they return the cart. ALDI also asks shoppers to bring reusable bags and has never offered single-use plastic bags — a sustainable policy that leads to savings passed on to customers.

ALDI also offers online shopping and curbside pickup

The new store is located at 1750 Hwy.14 East in Landrum.
