Grocer keeps it simple - shoppers save big

Dwight, Ill. (Sept. 15, 2010) – Beginning Sept. 27, ALDI will offer grocery shoppers a smarter alternative as the select assortment discount grocer opens its newest stores, located at      4211 Avenue of the Cities in Moline and 1702 Brady St. in Davenport.  Known for its premium ALDI select brands, ALDI is able to offer high quality grocery items at unbeatable prices.

“ALDI is committed to providing our customers with the best products including fresh produce, meats and dairy at the lowest prices,” said Heather Moore, ALDI Dwight division vice president.  "Our customers have found that inexpensive can taste great.  We are thrilled to continue our long-standing partnerships with the cities of Moline and Davenport.”

Customers can expect to find more than 1,400 of the most frequently purchased items sold under its select brands for prices up to 50 percent less than traditional supermarkets.  A model of efficiency, ALDI eliminates overhead costs by offering smart and efficient practices including a cart deposit system where shoppers insert a quarter to release a cart and get the quarter back upon the cart’s return.  Other cost-saving practices include a smaller store footprint, open carton displays and encouraging customers to bring their own shopping bags.

ALDI also saves consumers money by keeping stores open during prime shopping times – typically from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

A grocery retailer that has grown without merger or acquisition, ALDI opened 80 new stores across the United States in 2009 and plans to open 100 stores in 2010.
