BROOKHAVEN — A new grocery store will come to Brookhaven this year. ALDI confirmed plans to open a location in Brookhaven in April. 

Since April’s news, questions of where ALDI will open and when it will open remain. Heather Moore, Loxley Division Vice President of Aldi, could not provide any new details.

“We are excited to confirm that we are expecting to open our first Brookhaven store later this year,” Moore said. “At this time, we don’t have any additional information to share but will stay close in the coming months as more updates are made available.”

ALDI announced earlier this year it planned to open about 800 new stores across the country. The southeastern US is one of the regions ALDI is focusing on opening stores in.

“Our growth is fueled by our customers, and they are asking for more ALDI stores in their neighborhoods nationwide,” said Jason Hart, CEO, ALDI. “With up to 40% savings on groceries, new customers are inspired to try us out, and existing customers keep coming back. While price is important, we earn their loyalty by stocking our shelves with only the best products and offering a quicker, easier, and more enjoyable shopping experience. With this commitment to add 800 stores in the next five years, we’ll be where our shoppers need us while positively impacting the communities we serve.”

ALDI’s PR firm confirmed the news a store was coming to Brookhaven around the time the grocery store Save-A-Lot closed at 840 Brookway Boulevard. Around the same time, 601-Sports moved down the sidewalk to the former Rite-Aid building where it is open at 820 Brookway Boulevard.
