COMPTON – Grocery shopping in Compton just got more competitive with the addition of ALDI, a leader in the grocery industry, which will open its first store here as part of a $3.4 billion investment to expand to 2,500 stores nationwide by the end of 2022.
ALDI has set the standard for quality and affordability. Now, Compton residents can join the millions of shoppers who turn to ALDI each month for high-quality, affordable food. To celebrate the store opening, ALDI hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, Dec., followed by its popular Golden Ticket giveaway offering gift cards to the first 100 customers. Shoppers also sampled ALDI-exclusive brand foods and entered a sweepstakes for a chance to win a year’s supply of ALDI produce.
“ALDI stores are designed to make life easier for people. We offer high-quality foods at affordable prices and a streamlined shopping experience unlike anything else,” said Tom Cindel, Moreno Valley Division Group director of Operations and Logistics for ALDI. “From our award-winning products, to trendy, fresh and healthy options, we’re focused on carrying a selection that has something for everyone.”
The new Compton ALDI store layout provides an improved in-store experience and features additional refrigeration space to accommodate even more fresh, healthy and convenient products. Compared to last year, 20 percent of the ALDI product selection is new. The ALDI product expansion is the next phase of the company’s aggressive, national growth and remodel plan. As part of the product expansion, ALDI is increasing its fresh food selection by 40 percent with many organic, convenient and easy-to-prepare options. ALDI stores also feature open ceilings, natural lighting, and environmentally-friendly building materials. The store will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
This approach has made ALDI one of the fastest-growing retailers in the U.S. As part of the company’s aggressive expansion plans, ALDI is adding 25,000 new jobs in stores, warehouses, and offices nationwide by the end of 2022. ALDI was named to the Forbes list of “America’s Best Large Employers” four years in a row and is proud to offer staff market-leading salaries and benefits. The retailer was also recognized as a 2018 National Top Workplace by Energage for the second consecutive year.
