The German discount grocery chain has been growing its U.S. presence.
Publish date:

Discount grocery store chain Aldi will open a new store in south Minneapolis next year.

The German company confirmed to Bring Me The News that its new store will form part of a development on the corner of 26th and Lyndale.

It's scheduled to open in summer 2019, Faribault Division Vice President Matt Lilla said.

It will be on the first floor of a five-story, mixed-use building called Rex 26, the Star Tribune reports, and will also be one of few stores with underground parking.

It will also have shopping baskets – so no hauling around cardboard boxes if you don't have a quarter for a cart.

Aldi is proving a huge disruption to the U.S. grocery market since making its entrance 15 years ago, undercutting rivals with its own-brand groceries thanks to its low-cost business model.

Bring Me The news' Tip Jar column found Aldi to be the cheapest place to grocery shop in the Twin Cities last year. You can see the results here.
