Aldi to open new Fla. DC, HQ


HAINES CITY, Fla. Aldi last week reported that it has broken ground on a new Florida headquarters and distribution center. The facilities will support 25 new stores opening in central Florida in fall 2008 and employ about 100 people, Aldi said.

"We're looking forward to becoming a part of the central Florida community and bringing great food and good jobs to the area," said David Behm, Aldi division vp. "Grocery customers can expect a bill up to 50% less than anywhere they shop now, and employees can expect a great working environment with well-paying jobs. We're excited to bring these benefits to the area as we continue our expansion all along the East Coast."

According to Aldi, the $40 million, 500,000-square-foot distribution center will service stores in the Tampa, St. Petersburg and Orlando areas that will begin opening in September.
