Aldi plans to establish a divisional headquarters and 500,000-s.f. distribution facility in Dinwiddie County, Virginia. Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s office said this week that the state successfully competed against North Carolina for the $57 million project, which will create 145 new jobs.

“We’re proud to locate our new division headquarters and distribution center in business-friendly Virginia. The access to qualified and capable employees and transportation options first attracted us to this location, but it was the integrity and positive attitude of the Dinwiddie County leaders that truly won us over,” said Jason Hart, CEO of Aldi. “Today, we have 32 Aldi stores in Virginia and we plan to open up to 60 additional locations across the Commonwealth over the next five years, helping more people save time and money by offering them premium quality groceries at everyday low prices in easy-to-shop stores.”

Added McAuliffe, “The decision by Aldi to choose Dinwiddie County as their division headquarters and distribution center is a wonderful testament to Virginia’s economic development assets and competitiveness. The Commonwealth continues to be a top state for the retail and distribution industry, and I am pleased to welcome one of the nation’s fastest growing retailers to Virginia. This announcement is a significant win for Dinwiddie County and a great step forward in our efforts to diversify and build a new Virginia economy.”

Aldi operates more than 1,500 U.S. stores in 34 states. The company currently is in the midst of an accelerated growth plan to operate nearly 2,000 stores by the end of 2018.
