Aldi Expands its Reach in Richmond, Virginia


RICHMOND, VA
Tuesday, December 15th, 2015

Virginia is about to get four more Aldi locations, rapidly taking the number of Richmond area stores from just five, to nine.

According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Aldi is taking on an already competitive grocery market with the move further into Richmond. Retailers including Wal-Mart’s Neighborhood Market, Food Lion, Kroger, and Martin’s Food Markets are among those already in the area.

“We respond to customer demand,” Jeffrey C. Baehr, Vice President of the Aldi’s Frederick, Md., Division, said in the Richmond Times-Dispatch report, commenting that while the company carries fewer items than competing stores in the area at only 1,300 items, “These are the 1,300 best-selling grocery items.” 

Just last week, Aldi opened a location at 7319 Forest Hill Ave store, joining the chain’s stores at 1776 N. Parham Road, at the Staples Mill Square shopping center at 8951 Staples Mill Road, at 7003 Mechanicsville Turnpike in the Hanover Square shopping center in Hanover County, and 465 Charles H. Dimmock Parkway in Colonial Heights near Southpark Mall.

First will be a 21,000 square-foot section of a building at 6291 W. Broad St., which is currently anchored by Burlington Coat Factory and an Office Max, followed by stores at 927 Myers St. and at Robious Road and Mall Drive in Chesterfield County. Aldi has also recently purchased a 2.2-acre tract of land at the Broad Hill Centre mixed-use development, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Aldi has previously announced its intention to expand its 1,400 U.S. locations to 2,000 by 2018, and the retailer doesn’t appear to be slowing.
