German discount grocer Aldi opening Northeast DC location
from The Washington Post
A new slice of competition has come to the D.C grocery market. Discount retailer Aldi plans to open a new store directly across from the Safeway on 17th Street NE, which long has had the neighborhood to itself. The next nearest food store is almost two miles away. The no-frills, Germany-based retailer broke ground last week on its first location in the District, adding to its roster of 21 stores in Maryland and 11 in Virginia. "Another grocery store in the area will help create better prices for residents," said D.C. Council member Harry Thomas Jr. Aldi "will be like a neighborhood-based Costco's. And we can use that here."
