With inflation currently on the rise, big and small companies are making drastic changes to their businesses, including raising prices and closing physical stores. Yet, one of the largest grocery chains in the U.S. seems to be entirely unaffected by it all.
Grocery giant Aldi recently announced that 150 more store openings are expected for 2022, particularly in Louisiana. A massive distribution center will also open in Alabama to facilitate the push in the Southeast.
Aldi will continue offering low prices on its grocery items. Its concept of consistently offering the lowest grocery prices has been at the core of its business plan even before the pandemic and the subsequent inflation, thus making sure products will always be affordable.
