Grocery shoppers will have another Edmond option come July 24, when an ALDI store is scheduled to open at 1001 W Edmond Road.

The store is part of a chain with more than 1,300 stores in 32 states. The Edmond site will be one of 80 stores the company hopes to open this year. A Norman location was built this year at W Main Street, west of 24th Avenue NW.

“We are pleased to bring our first store to Edmond to help customers get high-quality products at everyday low prices,” said Scott Huska, Denton, Texas, division vice president for ALDI. “As important as price is, the only way to attract and keep shoppers is to have quality products.”

Local leaders welcomed the new business.

“We have a growing grocery market, and ALDI will add a niche that Edmond hasn’t seen,” said Janet Yowell, Edmond Economic Development Authority executive director.

Concurring was Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Ken Moore.

“This is a great addition to the community,” Moore said. “This will mean more jobs and more sales tax income for the city, and that’s always positive.”
