Will ALDI Help Las Vegas Valley Shoppers Save Money?
Do you still do your grocery shopping in person, at the store? Or do you prefer to have your groceries delivered to you? Well, if you still visit the supermarket each week, then there may soon be an international discount grocery chain opening their first location in Nevada. According to an article by Matthew Seeman on News3LV.com, supermarket giant ALDI may soon open a location in Henderson.
What You Need To Know About Supermarket Giant ALDI
Honestly, I have never been shopping at an ALDI grocery store. However, here in the U.S.A. there are now over “2,000 stores across 36 states with over 25,000 employees.” That’s according to the ALDI corporate website. Furthermore, they have over 12,000 locations in 18 countries around the world. So, when I call them a supermarket giant, I mean it.
And now, ALDI may open its first location here in Southern Nevada. Specifically, if approved by government officials, you’ll be able to find them at the corner of Marks Street and Sunset Road. In fact, they’re planning to take over the space that Bed, Bath & Beyond used to occupy at 621 Marks Street in Henderson.
ALDI Discount Stores began in Germany and did not expand to the United States until 1976. But they now have American corporate offices in Batavia, Illinois.
Will ALDI Stores Save Las Vegas Shoppers Money?
Of course, that’s their goal. The ALDI corporate website goes on to state: “Our customers can’t wait for our weekly ALDI finds…all at the low prices they love.” They also feature “exclusive ALDI products” which they claim, “taste the same, if not, better than national brands.”
Do those claims sound similar to another popular supermarket chain which already has locations in the Las Vegas valley? Well, many people who have shopped at ALDI say they are similar to Trader Joe’s. So, I did a quick internet search and found that ALDI Nord owns Trader Joe’s. According to an article by Camryn Teder on TheDailyMeal.com, they bought the chain in 1979. Although they do operate the two chains separately.
I must admit, my family is always looking for ways to save money at the grocery store. As a matter of fact, we have changed our grocery shopping habits over the years in order to stick to our budget. We get most of the weekly groceries at discount stores like Sam’s Club and Walmart. We’ll have to wait and see if supermarket giant ALDI can help us save money too.
