When it comes to the consumer marketplace, nothing is better for the consumer than a little friendly competition. Competition gives the consumers extensive choices, access to more variety and the benefit of lower prices. Central Florida discount grocers are about to see more competition enter the marketplace. For consumers, this means even more variety at the grocery store.
The new chain is named Aldi. Aldi, an abbreviation for Albrecht Discounts, is a German grocery chain that has been providing groceries to U.S. markets since 1976. Beginning in Iowa, Aldi has gradually expanded its holdings, which now equal 900 stores in 26 states. Aldi continues to expand its reach, most recently announcing its push into Central Florida.
