Loxley, Ala. — On Jan. 31, 2023, ALDI unveiled a new regional headquarters and distribution center in Loxley, Ala., which will ultimately serve as many as 100 stores across the Gulf Coast. The 564,000-square-foot facility is the grocer’s 26th regional headquarters and distribution center.
“At a time when inflation is putting pressure on American wallets, we believe our mission to save people money on the food and products they need is more important than ever,” says Heather Moore, ALDI divisional vice president for the Loxley region. “We are thrilled to see so much customer love for the 20 stores we’ve opened in the Gulf Coast area in the last year alone. Once they see the quality, selection and value ALDI offers, they keep coming back. That’s why we’re committed to providing our customers the lowest possible price, and the best possible value — that’s something that will never change.”
The Loxley facility is equipped to service stores across Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and the Florida Panhandle. In total, the 100 stores that will be supported by the Loxley facility represent an opportunity to reach more than 8 million customers.
As the 26th regional headquarters and distribution center for ALDI, and its sixth to be opened in the southern United States, Loxley will support the grocer’s rapid expansion in the region. ALDI is now operating 30 stores in the Gulf Coast, having opened 20 stores in the area last year alone. It plans to add another 13 stores in 2023.
The Loxley facility was designed with sustainability top-of-mind and will feature some of the most innovative and efficient design components included in any ALDI facility to date, including roof-mounted solar panels, LED lighting, an environmentally friendly refrigeration system and metal panel insulation. These elements work together to create a thermally tight and efficient building.
ALDI is one of America’s fastest-growing retailers. Since 1976, ALDI has offered a unique shopping experience where customers never have to compromise on quality, selection or value. For more information, visit www.aldi.us.
