Aldi to open first Denton store May 30

On May 30, the German discount grocer ALDI plans to open its first Denton grocery store at 1105 Loop 288 S.

To celebrate the opening of the Denton store, ALDI will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9:45 a.m. May 29.

The event is open to the public. Guests may sample ALDI exclusive brands and tour the new store, a press release said.  Additionally, they may participate in an on-site sweepstakes for a chance to win store gift certificates, a news statement said.

Store hours will be 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

ALDI has more than 1,200 U.S. stores located in 32 states. Over the last several years, ALDI has added approximately 50-80 new stores each year.

In 2009, Aldi Inc. opened a 500,000-square-foot distribution center at 2500 Westcourt Road in Denton at an estimated cost of $50 million.
