Aldi is opening its first grocery store in Winona next month.
The new store, at 1443 Service Drive, will open Wednesday, Nov. 11, a news release says. It will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., selling private-label foods allowing the chain to make many groceries cheaper compared to its competitors.
“We are dedicated to providing the communities we serve the best groceries at the lowest-possible prices, and we look forward to introducing Winona to their new neighborhood grocery store,” said Matt Lilla, Faribault division vice president for ALDI.
“We are focused on continuing to expand and open new stores across the country because we want to do our part. We know now, more than ever, easy access to fresh food and household essentials is invaluable," Lilla added.
The Winona store is part of Aldi's expansion plans to become the third-largest grocery retailer by store count by the end of 2022 as it invests more than $5 billion in new and remodeled stores across the United States.
Earlier this month, Aldi opened its first store in Bemidji.
Aldi currently has more than 2,000 stores in 36 states, including more than 50 in Minnesota.
