Move over, Walmart. There's a new supercheap grocer in town. South Florida, welcome Aldi -- the area's new low-priced supermarket -- which currently has several locations in Palm Beach and Broward counties, with more to come.
The discount grocer -- which along with Trader Joe's is owned by Germany's Albrecht family -- has opened about 1,300 U.S. stores in 32 states in the past few years. It's latest target: Florida, where it plans to open a total of 56 stores from Ocala to Miami. Today, Aldi sells a good selection of some of the nation's most commonly purchased grocery items, from toilet paper and paper towels to bottled water, eggs, milk, and bread.
