Aldi - additional information

Supermarkets, often interchangeably referred to as grocery stores, focus on selling food products. However, experts provide a more specific definition, depending on their size and scale, as well as the type of products they sell. According to the Food Marketing Institute, supermarkets belong to the traditional grocery segment. They are defined as full-line, self-service grocery stores with annual sales of about two million U.S. dollars or more. In 2015, there were approximately 38,015 supermarkets operating in the United States.

Aldi is one of the largest global discount supermarket chains with nearly 4,000 store operations in 18 countries. The company was founded by Anna Albrecht in Essen, Germany in 1914. Albrecht’s sons took over and expanded the business in 1948. The current brand name, a shortened version of “Albrecht Discount”, was first used in 1962. By the late 1960s, Aldi had over 200 store operations in Germany. Aldi first came to the United States in 1976, when the firm opened its first store in Southeastern Iowa. The firm continued its international expansion from the early 1990s up to the late 2000s.

Since its 1976 U.S. debut, Aldi had grown to approximately 1,140 stores nationwide in 2011. In 2015, the company operated more than 1,903 stores in the country. That year, Aldi’s estimated sales amounted to approximately 10.33 billion U.S. dollars. The firm’s total sales are expected to reach 11.44 billion U.S. dollars by 2021. In 2016, Aldi employed more than 22,000 people in the United States. Aldi plans to open new divisions in Royal Palm Beach, Florida, Rosenberg, Texas and Moreno Valley, California.
