ALDI, One of America’s Fastest-Growing Retailers, Opens First Landrum Store

LANDRUM, S.C. – July 27, 2023 — ALDI, one of the country’s most trusted grocers, is coming to Landrum with food (and more) that the whole family will love, all at great prices. More than 1,000 new ALDI stores have opened throughout America over the past decade, and customers nationwide have become loyal fans of the company’s fast and affordable shopping experience.
The ALDI business model is intentionally different, and ALDI fans across the country rave about the company’s award-winning exclusive brands and weekly lineup of limited-time ALDI Finds. Landrum shoppers can experience the ALDI difference themselves when the new Landrum store opens Thursday, August 10 at 8:45 a.m. The store will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The first 100 customers will receive a gift bag filled with a sampling of ALDI Fan Favorites products and a gift card as part of the ALDI Golden Ticket gift card giveaway program. Shoppers can also enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a $500 ALDI gift card during the Grand Opening weekend from August 10 through August 13.
“Our stores are designed to make grocery shopping smarter, faster and easier, and we’ve been
voted the price leader for six years running,” said Shaun O’Keefe, Jefferson regional vice president for ALDI. “We’re excited to open our first ALDI store in Landrum and introduce local customers to a new, more affordable way of shopping.”
Here are just a few things that set ALDI apart:
-Low-price leader: Access to affordable groceries is important, and the company’s
commitment to low prices is unwavering. In fact, the ‘dunnhumby’ Retailer Preference Index
Report has ranked ALDI No. 1 on price for six years running.**

-Quality: ALDI is so confident in its products, such as its fresh, organic produce delivered
daily, that every item is backed by its Twice as Nice Guarantee.* If for any reason a customer is not 100% satisfied with the quality of a product, ALDI will gladly replace the product AND refund it. ALDI-exclusive products: ALDI sells mostly exclusive brands made by the best partners. Landrum shoppers will find food for every taste and lifestyle (gluten-free, plant-based, dairy alternatives, etc.) along with an unbeatable cheese and wine selection. Shoppers will also discover weekly offerings of limited-time ALDI Finds like candles, delicious seasonal food, home goods and more. Shoppers participate in the savings: The savings start before customers enter the store. Depositing a quarter to unlock a shopping cart is one way ALDI saves shoppers money. ALDI doesn’t need to hire employees to corral loose carts, and customers get their quarter back when they return the cart. ALDI also asks shoppers to bring reusable bags and has never offered single-use plastic bags — a sustainable policy that leads to savings passed on to customers.

Online shopping and curbside pickup: Customers want convenient shopping options, which is why nearly all ALDI locations offer grocery delivery, and Curbside Grocery Pickup is expanding rapidly nationwide. Visit to place an order.

Store size: ALDI stores are designed for simplicity and efficiency, packed with the products
shoppers love. A typical ALDI store is approximately 12,000 square feet of retail space,
making it easier to shop than oversized grocery stores.
Work with ALDI: ALDI is an award-winning employer that is nationally acclaimed for
prioritizing its employees and their well-being. Known for offering highly competitive wages
and industry-leading benefits, ALDI has been recognized as one of America’s Best Large
Employers by Forbes six times in the past seven years. As one of the fastest-growing
retailers in the U.S., ALDI is constantly creating new jobs in local communities, coast to
coast. To learn more about working at ALDI and search job openings, go to
