Aldi Plans Expansion Into Gulf Coast By 2023

As Batavia, Illinois-based Aldi expands in the Southeast, the company will count Louisiana as its 38th state of operation when it opens its Lafayette store on Feb. 10. It plans to open two more Gulf Coast stores in early March, along with 20 additional stores throughout the region by year-end.

“There is nothing like watching shoppers discover Aldi for the first time,” said Jason Hart, CEO of Aldi U.S. “There’s a moment of surprise when they realize just how much they can save by shopping with us. We can’t wait to share that experience with more customers as we add new stores across the Southeast.” 

To support its growth in the area, the company also will open a new 564,000-square-foot regional distribution center in Loxley, Alabama later this year. The facility will eventually support as many as 100 new stores throughout Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and the Florida Panhandle. 

In addition to opening stores, Aldi will increase access to online shopping options. The company will expand its Curbside Grocery Pickup offering from 1,200 to 1,500 stores by the end of the year to make shopping quick and easy for customers.

Aldi has been No. 1 for price according to the Dunnhumby Retailer Preference Index Report for five years running. Aldi serves as a Feeding America Leadership Partner, donating 30 million pounds of food each year in an effort to end hunger in America.

Aldi plans to open approximately 150 new stores and remains on track to become the third-largest U.S. grocery retailer by store count by the end of this year.
