April Bailey – Aiken Standard, S.C.

A new supermarket is making its way to Whiskey Road.

Construction has recently begun for an Aldi grocery store located on Whiskey Road in between Lowe’s and Hobby Lobby. According to Tina-Marie Adams, a spokeswoman for the supermarket, the store should be complete by next spring.

Adams said Aldi offers shoppers high quality items at a low price. At Aldi stores, food is priced up to 50 percent below traditional supermarket prices.

“It’s funny, we appeal to traditional supermarket shoppers that want high quality but don’t want to pay too much for it,” Adams said.

The store will offer low-priced meats, dairy products, frozen foods, produce, bakery items, wine and beer, snacks, beverages, pantry items and household items. Most of the items sold will be Aldi brand-named products.

“The economy has been an interesting dynamic for us,” said Adams. “The prices get people in there and the quality keeps them coming back.”

Aldi is said to be the leader in the international grocery retailing industry. The store entered the U.S. market in 1976.
