Harrison, Arkansas has one as well. I’m stoked that Branson is getting one!

ALDI Corporate Policy must have done a 180 degree turnaround. DW called them three years ago asking them to place a store in Branson and the answer was a polite "NO".

The person at ALDI said the Branson area was entirely too "seasonal" and that they had opened a store at Lake of the Ozarks and had to close it due to lack of business in the off-season.

Hope we see them and can guarantee our patronage. Their new stores and increased and improved selections are great !

Location will be interesting..

I am surprised at them coming to town,
with Price Chopper and Country mart (I shop both often),and will continue to do so,
and the 2 walmarts. (Never walk in the door)...


Must be very confident with what they have to offer.

Lots of organic choices! Many non-gmo, no additives, etc choices. Excellent German chocolate and wine and seasonal treats. Aldis carries good coffees and specialty items like Kerrygold Irish butter and a fabulous sourdough bread. Excellent prices on cheeses, too... Havarti, Gouda, Goats Milk, etc.
Every week they offer Special non food items...at sale prices.
Those are a few reasons I shop at Aldi's.
Two stores in Springfield....and Springfield has an abundance of other grocery stores, too.
Easy in, easy out, bring your own bags.

Plus there is Country Mart and Harter House in Hollister and Country Mart in Branson West.

My job is in the grocery business. When Aldi comes to town the traditional grocery stores do take a hit, know for sure that it happened to the 3 traditional grocery stores in Harrison. Aldi hurts Walmart grocery sales, too.

Hoping they will carry the same waffles as Trader Joe's considering they are the same company. Guess I could check the Nixa store:boggled:

I thought they were affiliated with Whole Foods...I was obviously mistaken. Duh! But either one is good with me!

I think I read that it's a family business.... Aldi's is owned by one brother and Trader Joe's by another brother....or something like that.
Aldi's has the best sauerkraut in a glass jar and at the best price, too. Good probiotics.

Mandarin Orange Chicken, peanut butter pretzels, dark chocolate peanut butter cups are all good Trader Joes products that perhaps will show up at Aldi's.

The stores were started by two brothers in Germany whose last name was Albrecht. (The AL in ALDI is for Albrecht.) The DI is for "Diskont" which translates to "discount".

I so hope this is true. Any time I go to Springfield or St Louis I stop in Aldi. I don't know how anyone affords to shop at CountryMart or wants to pay more for the exact same thing. I only go there once in awhile if there is a good deal in their sale ad.

New building, I've never seen an Aldi take over a building. I've shopped at an older, very small store for several years. Finally, a new store was built in my town that's larger, very well lit and much wider aisles. Now the older store in the next town over is going to be remodeled and made larger.

There are very few items I've purchased that I don't care for. Lots of excellent quality and prices.

I actually have seen Aldi’s take over an old building. When they first opened in Leavenworth, they moved in to an old grocery store.

And I agree, I haven’ purchased things there I didn’t care for. Their selection has improved greatly since I first shopped in their store back in the mid-80’s.
