Queens, NY—Discount grocer ALDI opened its first-ever New York City store on Feb. 18, 2011. Located in Rego Park Center in the Queens borough of New York City, the store will offer high-quality ALDI select brands at prices that are up to 45% less than other New York City traditional grocers. In addition, ALDI is bringing its standard store floor plan to Queens, including 8-foot-wide aisles that give customers more room to shop than in a typical New York City grocery store.
This is the first of three grocery stores the company plans to open in the area, including new locations in the Bronx and Bay Shore areas.

In the spring of 2010, ALDI opened a new division in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. A select assortment discount grocer featuring its own ALDI select brands, ALDI applies smart and efficient operational and business practices to save more than 20 million monthly customers up to 45% on their grocery bills. ALDI, named 2009 Retailer of the Year by PL Buyer, sells more than 1,400 of the most frequently purchased grocery and household items in manageable, non-bulk packaging.
